    I'm going to buy W10 on DVD or try the free download. I know I must have W7 in place to download W10 but, If I buy the W10 DVD can I install it on another PC with Vista or XP.

    Or to get W10 I must have W7 or earlier?
    I have several old PCs I'm trying to keep up to date in case of a crash or problem, I can just swap PCs and keep things going without a hitch.
    Thanks

    All W7 machines should update to Win 10 with this tool. It will inform you of any issues.

    Will the W10 DVD work on XP or Vista?

    Yes as you would have to wipe and install fresh anyway.

    you cannot upgrade without a fresh install from anything earlier than Windows 7 as far as i know.
