    Hi, try a clean reinstall. Activation should be automatic. However, I'm not sure how you manage with very restricted storage.

    ================= Manual installation ===========

    Hi, your drive is shot- so you need to replace it. Good thing you ran the test- for some reason I didn't mention it.

    You can freely download Win 10. But you need something to put it on.

    You also need external storage for backups. You do have backups, I hope?

    We continually urge people to use disk imaging (which requires external storage) so they can quickly and easily restore their systems without significant loss of time or data.

    Your only option is a clean install.

    Please note forum rules prohibit 'bumping' and 'useless one-liners'.

    Nope-- if you even manage to succeed in installing Win 10, your PC may fail in any way at any time.
