    Windows 7 Home Prem OA since hard drive died

    I recently had my hard drive replaced, I finally got my replacement recovery media from ACER for my Gateway NV75S02u... So even though I had Windows 10, I am back to Windows 7 Home Pro. I believe that I have read options to get back to Windows 10, that will work as the install (unsure if upgrade, clean install, etc.) that will either use my windows 7 product key, or during the process will detect that this computer(motherboard) has already been upgraded to Windows 10. So I am trying to verify my next step to get back to windows 10, after which I will try to learn how to use it, I believe starting by getting rid of the promo junk, then learn how to make the most of what I have to work with.
