Hi David, welcome to the forums. 

 

Before proceeding do you know your laptop specs? (CPU, GPU, HDD or SSD?, RAM). This will give us some idea whether it's a good idea or not...

If the specs match then it's just a matter of doing the same thing you probably did with Windows 7.   You can grab the windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a bootable install USB or DVD.

the installation process for 10 prior to getting to the OOBE is identical to 7 so if you don't have trouble going through the 7 install steps then you shouldn't have any issue with 10 either

Doesn't MS also have a upgrade/install hardware check tool?  Or does the media creation tool do the hardware check before it starts downloading?  I forget, I haven't done a clean install of Windows 10 since original RTM 3 years ago.

Good! That'll work!!!

As Brandon said it's the same process as Windows 7, are you planning to do an upgrade or a clean install?

Hello,

 

Visit https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 and click on the Download tool now button under the Create Windows 10 Installation Media section to save the Windows installation media creation tool.  Run it, insert a blank 8GB (or higher capacity) USB flash drive, and follow the instructions on the screen to download and write the Windows 10 installation media to the USB flash drive.   Then, restart your computer and tell it to boot from the USB flash drive containing Windows 10 in order to start the installation, and follow the instructions from there.

 

Regards,

 

Aryeh Goretsky
