How to upgrade a dual boot 7 / 8.1

My configuration: Dual boot: W8.1 on a SSD, W7 on a HD, all user files from both W7 and W8.1 are on the W7 HD.
The only reason for keeping W7 in the air was a NLE (video editing) which did not function well in a W8 environment.

What should be the best / least risky way of upgrading my W8.1

Thanks! Never thought of that. I will move the users back to their original places.

I would remove (unplug) the hdd with W7 to do the upgrade... then put it back in after and have it as a mulitiboot system.
They are on different hdd anyway so there is no point to having then dualed.

Thanks. Which also means setting the users back - see previous answer -. I think, that should work, I 'll go fore it!
