Why not just install Windows 10 now ?
Also Burn an ISO to CD or DVD.....so you will always have a spare copy.
Once win 10 is installed....you can reset it (and also keep your pics and music and files)....this procedure reinstalls a fresh copy of win10. You will lose any programs that you have installed that are not part of the windows store. eg VLC player...
Putting win 10 on a thumb drive is possibly even better....less likely to get damaged. An 8gb thumb drive is all you need. Use
to set up the thumb drive.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
