Windows 10: Install WIN 10 on a PC tha has a WIN 7 key.
Install WIN 10 on a PC tha has a WIN 7 key.
Searched the forum for possible solutions but did not find any.
I have machine to convert to Win 10. The PC came with WIN 7 installed, but this was replaced with Win XP ( the current installed OS).
I have a USB media stick with WIN 10 on it created from a direct download.
Can I simply wipe the HDD, and then directly install WIN 10 seeing I have a win 7 key available?
So long as it is latest version and you have your windows 7 key, then that will work.

I am busy doing a backup of the files and folders. There is only one partition.
Plug in the media stick and run the process?
This assumes the Win 7 key is still stored somewhere in the machine.
Hang on - you need to know your key. Windows 7 keys are probably not stored as you installed xp. If pc came with windows 7, key is usually on a blue sticker on base of pc.

Sorry if this has been addressed already (a search didn't yield exactly what I was looking for). I'm planning on doing a clean install of Win10 next weekend after upgrading from 7 x64 Pro. I'm wondering if anybody has a detailed account on what...
Whenever I log on, I get a black screen with a cursor. I can access my files and go online through task manager but my desktop doesn't load up.
This has led me to believe that maybe that part of the install went bad and those files were never made...
