Hello, i need to connect two stack [2x X440-24p-10G] and [3x x460-48-10G] with core 7100 switch.
My problem is to share 10Gb ports on (x440/x460) one for stack and one for uplink - is that possible or both ports have to be stack OR uplink in the same time?

That is correct, the X440 will not allow you to stack with one port and use the other as a 10Gig connection. The other platforms will allow this ..
For every stack-port you can configure if it is the native stack port or the alternate port, so you could have 1 native and 1 alternate stack-port on your switch.I don't think you can stack and uplink a X440 however you can do this on the X460-G2 and X450-G2 i believe

I found information that it was possible in earlier firmware version.
