    You can't do it easily.

    If you want to install Windows 10 on it, it'll have to be a clean install and it won't be free. It only applies for Windows 7 and newer.

    Make sure the computer has sufficient specifications to run the OS as well.

    Not possible.
    You will need to be on Win 7 or higher.

    If your computer has the specifications to support it, buy Windows 7 pro on Amazon.

    Re: xandros9 and RumoredNow,
    Wouldn't it be less money to purchase a Windows 7 OS license, as I said, and then upgrade to Windows 10 from there? Assuming, as I said, that the computer specifications will support the upgrades. More work, but cheaper. In this whiny "everyone should give me everything for free" world, it might be the least cost, legitimate solution. No?

    I would check the actual prices of Windows 7, 8.0, 8.1 and 10 keys and act appropriately. So yea, 7 is probably cheapest.

    Watch out!!!

    Do not get a "bargain" and buy a System Builder version. They do NOT upgrade to 10 for free. That would be money down the drain.

    What?s the Difference Between the ?System Builder? and ?Full Version? Editions of Windows?
