Windows 7 to Windows 10 on Ryzen

If I had an HDD with Win7 and tried to use it on Ryzen, will it be possible to update to Win10? This is my only option as I my laptop doesn't detect USB drives.

Well, you could wipe and reinstall win 10 but as far as a straight upgrade with all data still on no you can't do that. you could also make a new partition but that might not work. This won't work because the laptop has an OEM version of windows which is non-transferrable between computers.

The laptop originally had linux then booted a Win7 via CD. And it's not activated.

can't upgrade then you need a key unless you reinstall with no key for win 10
