    Windows 10 updates the bootloader.

    On a related note, it won't clobber Linux Bootloaders.

    You've likely got them setup so that although they're on separate drives they actually share a boot partition.

    Boot to Windows 7, open up msconfig.exe and set Windows 7 as the default OS. You can then reinstall the loader and reboot.

    Any time the OS does a big update e.g. 10166 to 10240 then it updates the boot sector. You then need to repeat the above.

    Any good reason to keep Windows 7 installed anyway?
