    I have a Dell that had Widows 7 home on it- the Hard drive died - I have a new blank Hard drive. I want to Install windows 10 Home on it without putting 7 on it. I do have a legal COA code for Windows 7.

    What is the best way to to do this?

    You can only do an upgrade. Windows 7 keys do not work for Windows 10.

    Install Windows 7 and upgrade.

    Just as Beam said, but you only need to install win 7, then follow these instructions below, and then you can clean install windows 10 without doing upgrade and clean installing 10.
