I have been fighting with a Toshiba laptop that I want to upgrade to Windows 10. I have a key code for Windows 10 Home but have had a horrible time trying to install it.
The Toshiba laptop originally came with Windows 8. It has 6 gigs of Ram and 750 gig hard drive. It also has a solid state drive.
I tried to repair the Windows 8 laptop. It won't do a system restore. It also won't work with a System Refresh nor a System Reset.
I took the hard drive out of the computer and was able to retrieve pictures, documents, etc.
I downloaded a media creation tool for Windows 8.1. It would only go so far and then tell me that the Toshiba Laptop needed a Recovery Disk to correct the problem. I also have a media creation tool for Windows 10. I would prefer to have Windows 10 installed on the computer.\
Does it make sense to reformat the entire drive for the Toshiba and then install Windows 10. I know it would be difficult to locate all the drivers but I don't think I am having much luck otherwise.
Would "any" recovery disk for Toshiba help me to get the system going. I can get one from ebay for about $9.00. Thanks for any and all advice. I am stumped.
