@LAST_KING1 

Don't know if a PC that old will run Win10 -- but there is another issue.  To do the FREE upgrade to Win10, you have to have Win7 already running on the PC.  IF you install Win10 to a new drive, it will demand a product key -- and you do not have one for Win10.

 

Also, HP no longer supplies recovery media for Win7, so you can't get it from HP.

 

There are others in the forum that know about other sources for Win7, so if one of them comes along, you will find out where you can go to get it.
