I have Vista (SP2) and want to replace it with Windows 10. My machine meets all the minimum requirements for Windows 10.
How easy is it to replace the OS?
Is it easier to purchase an install disk or download it online? Where I live I have a very slow broadband connection (say 300 KB per second........!!) and an attempt to downl.oad from Microsoft's own website has already failed as apparently Vista is incompatible with the software used to install Windows 10 onto the external USB flash drive.
Here is the message that appears on the MS website when I search for 'download Windows 10': "You've been routed to this page because the operating system you're using won't support the Windows 10 media creation tool and we want to make sure that you can download Windows 10. To use the media creation tool, visit the Microsoft Software Download Windows 10 page from a Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 device."
Also when I install Windows 10 will it automatically overwrite Vista?
