  • Hi,

    At first, if your current hard drive doesn’t exist error or trouble, you don’t need to purchase a new hard drive for Windows 10 especially.

    Windows 10 doesn’t have a high hardware requirement, even you want to install a 64-bit version, your machine just need to have a 20GB free space, which is really easy for current hard drive.

    If you want to get an excellent user experience, you can try buy a SSD, then install Windows 10 on this drive, 128GB is completely enough, and it will bring a fast running speed for you, the startup time will be in 10 seconds.

    Regards
