Default Dual Boot Same Os


I run a computer school where I teach Excel and Word. I have 8 machines and I want to have my machines boot into several OS's. I actually have it working now with Win 7 & Win 10. The only problem is that Windows 10 can't be ghosted. I only have one machine with Windows 10 that is activated and the rest are not. That is not really my problem since I already know MS just does not allow Ghosting of Win 10 upgrade.

I plan to start over again and install Win 7 and Win 8 on my test machine then ghost the machines and then upgrade each Win 8 install to Win 10. Really sucks I have to do that but oh well.

My question is Can I triple boot with two Win 7 and Win 8. I want to have Office 2016 set up so I can start offering a class on it. From what I'm told I can't run Office 2013 & 2016 on same machine.

So why not use a non-upgrade version?

I'd be surprised if Office 2016 was any different in that regard to previous versions. Previously, the only Office app that couldn't co-exist with a different version of the same app was Outlook.

I'm talking about the Office 365 business versions of both. MS states that you can not run the two on the same machine.

Those (Office 2013 & 365) are different editions of the same version; that is no different than any other version of Office and never has been. As for the Office 2103 vs 2016 editions of Office 265 ProPlus licenses referred to in the article, the issue here is that the article is referring to subscription licenses and, once the 'use-by' date has passed the subscription is being transferred to the Office 2016 subscription and the Office 2013 subscription license will have expired. This is thus a licensing issue rather than a technical one regarding compatibility between versions to co-exist.
