    Probably DAZ's Loader if your edition of Vista is listed in DAZ's help files:

    Depending on its config - what's the actual model of it?

    I have 10 running nicely on an old Asus Eee PC Netbook: 2GB RAM and the rest is pure stock. It's a bit slow at times and doesn't multitask very well, but for surfing, emailing and light office work it's fine. I would not want it for a main or production machine but it was never designed for that.

    With Vista you can make a system image; make an image, install 10 and see how you like it. If you don't like it, don't activate it and restore your image. If you do like it, activate it and enjoy.

    If you want a digital license for 10 you have to install windows 7 (pro or ultimate if you want licensed 10 pro) first and activate it with Daz Loader, then follow the instructions in this thread.
    If you just want to activate a clean install of 10 you'll have to use KMS activation.
    The first method is more future proof and takes longer to set up. The second method, KMS, could possibly stop working if MS changes the KMS method. So I'd use the first method unless you just want to do it the quick KMS way.
    I recommend the Windows 7 to 10 method.

    I doubt that, there can always be unsupported hardware which won't run on 10.

    Koze, this isn't enough for you to tell us your system spec's, can't help unless you tell us:confused:

    Nothing is slower and heavier than vista, so, if your PC meets the requirements about the CPU features (MS artificially made them more stringent since Win 8) W10 will run as Vista, likely Better.


    First test, then think about how to activate. Is pointless to worry about the activation before knowing if W10 runs on your PC.

    Why install Win 10 in first place if he just tells us specs, it may save him some time, if we find it won't activate, why install Win 10:confused:

    If it runs it will activate, where is the problem?

    It really isn't a problem, If he tells us what he has, maybe we can tell him it won't work, thus saving him from installing something that won't work.:D
