I have a Dell 9100 desktop computer running windows XP. I would like to replace my C: drive with a new HDD and install OEM version of windows 10 on it. Can I use Seagate's Disk Wizard to prepare new HDD for windows 10?

Hello Barneyhelper,

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Windows 10 may not run on your computer, the latest drivers available are for XP and Dell state here the following

 

Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade
 
Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.

 

 

Had you been running Vista there is a chance that Windows 10 may run but before purchasing any Windows 10 installation media I would suggest that if you can you borrow Windows 10 media and see if it will install else you may find yourself out of pocket.
