Buy a new $50 hard drive. Install Windows 10. Install all your important software. Celebrate with a beer.
If it doesn't work, put the old hard drive back in...

Correct me if I'm wrong (it's happened  :-X) but I don't think Virtual Windows XP, which works with Win 7, will work with Win 10.

the issue is all the Cad software installed on various machines, given to me by employers, fully licensed, but I have no discs for re-installing them all... on newer platforms, of which some of the older software will still not work with the new o/s

I bear no ill will to MS over upgrading their products.  Time marches on as do OS'.  It does on the products (IBM) I work with.  I'm used to it.   You know I just bought a 2016 Tacoma and I absolutely love it.  Got rid of a 1991 Dakota and a 2005 RAV4.  The Dakota was past obsolescence.   The RAV had issues that needed to addressed and didn't want to deal with it.  I was born in a time when cars had points and road draft tubes and ran on leaded gas, cheaply I might add.  However, I do enjoy certain aspects of technology such as wireless  and Bluetooth connectivity, PCs that run like scalded dogs (no dogs were harmed), color printers, scanners, scanning software that really works, microwave ovens, indoor toilets and plumbing, satellite radio, satellite tv, HD tv, HD radio, smartphone apps and on and on....  Unless you live like a hermit in the middle of Appalachia, you will be affected by advances in technology whether you like it or not.  I like it.

My previous lap top cried enough a month or so ago, so I replaced it with this one which came with Windows 10 already installed

Its fine it somewhat different to what I had become used to for several years, TBH I don't see W10 as being any  better ...just saying  ;)

I totally agree.  I turned off the talking bit so in some respects, I'm not embracing the technology where you speak to a device and it does what you tell it.  It certainly hasn't worked with my children and wife.  Many times OS' get upgraded and there really isn't anything of redeeming value in it from the user's point of view except support.  And speaking of support, I've never called any support on my WinPCs.  Done it all myself.  Windows 8 was universally panned by the masses.  It got better at 8.1 and usable with my start8 software but there were still misgivings over the the entire episode.  Windows 10 has addressed many of those misgivings and has had many good reviews.  I'm still working out the kinks as far as my setup goes....still that weird error with the Conexant audio on boot.  I'll fix it eventually, though.

Interesting time line of Windows OS...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Microsoft_Windows

Windows 10 is actually SKYNET. I had to turn off auto update to stop an unrequested, unasked for upgrade to 10. My f..king computer is telling me what I have to do?  >:(
