How does one format a win7 laptop and fresh install win10?
>>
>>63730846
you do that by formatting the win7 laptop and doing a fresh install of win10
>>
>>63730875
But I'm an idiot and haven't done it before.
Do I just format and then start with win10 on thumbdrive?

link me something plz
>>
>insert win10 installation dvd
>restart laptop
>format harddrive
>install win10

congratulations, you now have malware.
>>
by installing gentoo ;)
>>
>>63730846
You don't
>>
>>63730886
just google "free win10 install" and try all the websites on the first few pages of search results until one of them works. make sure to turn any antivirus or firewalls off first and ignore any bullshit "malicious software" warnings from google or your web browser.

>>63730846
Remove the Windows 7 sticker and place a Windows 10 one.
>>
>>63731003
Thank you, downloading the installer to usb now
>>
>>63731006
This.

Only possible issue you might have is if you are loading the you might come across is if you load the installer onto a usb3 stick and your laptop only has usb2 slots. Even then, I've only had this happen installing servers. But yeah if it shits itself halfway through or won't even begin, this might be why.

this is my current computer. I refer to it as potato laptop. Sorry that you have to use that piece of crap anon.
>>
>>63730846
you dont need to format the pc.
just boot from the usb/dvd and during the installation process you will be able to format
>>

Use a hard drive formatter, install gentoo.

I had to use it until about two years ago. I built a gaming pc. Right now I'm just seeing if I can salvage the laptop.

PC im on now is i5 6600k. evga gtx 1070sc
16gb ram.
>>
>>63731526
ya maybe

can enter diskpart from windows 10 bootloader
hit shift+f10 when at the setup screen to enter cmd
>>
>>63731544
I was just about to build a gaming pc but then gpu and ram prices skyrocketed so I have to use it for now but once I get a new pc this is becoming a linux machine

Unrelated, but I just installed Windows 10 on my old HDD and every fucking time I reboot Windows re-installs Bubble Witch Saga, Candy Crush Saga, Minecraft, Disney Magic Kingdoms and March of Empires. Every. Fucking. Time.

I've disabled literally every option I've found. How the fuck do I disable this shit? Fucking hell.
>>
>>63731580
Wow I didn't even know. I just moved my ram around yesterday too. It's like 3x what I paid for it.

What's going on?

>>63731647

I've never installed that shit to begin with. Fucking cancerous Windows 10 automatically installed them on the first boot and now it re-installs them every fucking time I boot despite me manually uninstalling them first thing every boot. This shit drives me fucking nuts, I barely use Windows any more but I need Visual Studio for this one project and this shit is killing me.
