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
Do any of your family members have a pc/a laptop? Im sure they wouldnt mind you borrowing it for 30mins
Nope. All my family members live atleast 800 miles away.
Do you have a local library with pcs?
Then you might be able to do it there
