    What is the PC and what is it running at the moment?

    If it's Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 you can upgrade it, you don't need to do a clean install. Although the 'free upgrade' is supposed to have ended, seems Microsoft are still activating upgrades.

    No need to format if using an ISO.....when mounting it asks what drive you wish to install W10, then formats it before installing.

    You need to click on drives to see what is installed on them, then you will know where you choose to install.

    Open disk management, right click on each drive then click on "open" will reveal everything on drive.
