    Hello Terry,

    It depends on how Windows 10 will be installed.

    If you clean install or upgrade install Windows 10 on top of the Windows 7/8, then it'll replace Windows 7/8.

    If you install Windows 10 on a separate partition or drive than the current Windows 7/8, then you'll have a dual boot with Windows 10 and Windows 7/8.

    You're most welcome.

    You'll also have the option to go back to previous version of Windows if needed for up to 10 days after the upgrade.
