I have a new laptop running Win 10 & I love it!! I have an older Acer laptop running a legal version of Win7.
I've been getting notices to upgrade to Win10. I've had all kinds of issues with the Acer laptop over the years.
Many of this issue I've posted on this forum with great success. Here is what I'd like to do.
-Once I get all important files off the Acer HDD I want to reformat it.
-I've had so many issues in the past I would just feel more comfortable starting fresh with formatted HDD.
-I want to put Win 10 on the freshly formatted Acer HDD.
So is this possible? Can I get Free Win 10 from MS on a formatted or brand new HDD? A friend said I should just
clean the HDD without doing the formatting. I understand that but I'm just concerned there could be errors,
viruses other problems deeply hidden in the HDD. Can anyone provide suggestions on this situation?
