    Strange you should be able to wipe all those drives clean and compound into one Drive only. Are you sure your doing it right? I've used W10 disc and USB and can wipe a drive clean to do a Full W10 install.

    I have done several clean installs of Windows 10, I use a Linux Disk Wipe Program made by Peter Hyams its really fast, then install Windows 10 from a Win 10 image burned to dvd--Windows 10 first-run setup experience, also known as OOBE (out-of-box-experience) is a pain yet gets done, there are few working on Closing OOBE out to install automatically without OOBE -- good for them. As to virus scanner get one with a firewall, I get Norton Free so I use it and have had no viruses.

    I just downloaded the Win10 file from Windows, created a bootable USB, tried eleting all partitions (it would only let ime do one), it's kelp the Backup and HP one.

    Anyway its on the primary drive now and running fine after all the updates have been applied, i have not disabled Wn Defender yet and i'm still undecided on what to get?

    I also used this tool to disable a load of junk ( i never added Cortana). -

    Your laptop support 16Gb, yet 4 and 4 is more economical, later think about Nvme drive if you have that socket available.

    Hi,

    I am in a somewhat similar situation. My old computer (Vaio VGN-NR290E) has Windows 7. And I just bought a beautiful unused Vaio SVE17 with Windows 10. But have decided I want to keep that computer clean from the Internet (avoiding all the viruses, and bugs from upgrades, that gradually damage the computer more and more over time), and only use it offline, for movies, graphics and other work.

    Can I just copy Windows 10 from the Vaio SVE17, load it in a USB, and then install it in my old computer? If so, how do I roughly go about this? Where in the Vaio SVE17 do I find the whole of Windows 10 for download?

    Hello, not impossible, but even if it boots it may give a ton of interesting hours trying to figure a fine collection of small or big problems. So 'bad idea' means there are ways to do it that will result in a stable, working environement without trouble (assuming your pc hardware supports w10), with an activated w10. Between 2 very close to 100% similar pc's there are good chances of a os transfer working good (have done this, not copying os, but restoring disk images (macrium reflect), and with key tied to hardware, it all activates fine).

    Otherwise, an inplace upgrade (after a disk image backup of the 7 install) from 7 to 10, and look for it to activate\working ok using the w7 key, then later make a fresh, clean install of w10. Or remove the 7 hd and do a fresh 10 install using another hd, and see if it works\activates\got all needed drivers\is stable etc.

    But, yes, go ahead trying your copy plan, nothing will catch fire, experimentation is nice :O)
    (do a disk image backup of 7 install first, or use a dedicated hd).

    7 will work for eternity (to be used as long as one's programs and pc work), only os fixes\security updates stops, not 7 itself. Probably could make w95 work if that is what one wants :O)

    Just my opinions. Good luck.

    Thanks 6730b. Before the Windows 7 I had Windows Vista. But I needed to upgrade to W7, because the newer Internet Explorer and Chrome versions, needed for some Internet transactions, Vista could not handle.
