crashed unfixable hardrive, can it be replaced/upgraded to win 10?
I have a Dell dimension E510 windows xp. It broke years back. The hard drive crashed and according to the computer is non existent. I would like to be able to have a a family member use the computer again. I know I need to replace the hard drive, but can it be replaced with windows 10, since xp is no longer secure online? Would I replace it with the exact same hard drive, then upgrade after? I am not a tech person so I am not sure what I need to do, or if it is even possible to upgrade this computer . Any help would be appreciated. ps. I understand that windows is not pre installed on the hard drive, but I’m not sure if I can upgrade to windows 10 from an xp after installing a new hard drive. I also heard that upgrading might make it run too slow, so would it be worth it to put in a new hard drive, and upgrade to windows 10? Like I said, I am not a tech person, so any help would be appreciated.
