    You cannot upgrade from Windows Vista SP2 to Windows 10.
    You first have to upgrade from Windows Vista SP2 to Windows 7 SP1 then you have to upgrade from Windows 7 SP1 to Windows 10.

    You didn't describe the computer that you're wanting to install Windows 10 in.
    If it originally came with Windows XP or Windows Vista, I doubt it has the speed or the hardware to run Windows 10.

    Please post the spec. of your PC here. IF the hardware is compatible, then you will have to do a 'clean install'. This will move your old Windows, Program files, Users folders to C:\Windows.old and install Windows from scratch, any programs will need re-installing or new versions installed, files can be copied over from C:\Windows.old if required.
