If your computer came with any of the following then select Windows 10 Pro 64bit
- Windows 7 Professional (Pro)
- Windows 7 Ultimate
- Windows 8.1 Professional (Pro)
- Windows 8.1 Professional for Education (Students/Pro)

my dell came with windows VISTA HOME PREMIUM 32BIT
It has been progressively upgraded through vista 32 bit to windows 7 and finally to windows 10 pro, which it ran very well for a number of months until we had a power failure in the house and that resulted in our current position, the last upgrade to W10 PRO was done on 24 july 2017.
after the power failure it would not pass the dell boot screen.
AAL OF MY UPGRADES WERE PURCHASED FROM THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE

Completely different. That's great. Are you sure you didn't use the Seagate drive though, it only showed 298GB?

Okay sounds like it is installing. Let me know when it is complete.
