In addition I had to replaced the original hard drive (41% health) and had issues with the update.

    Create a bootable pen drive from Windows 10 ISO. Restart your computer & from boot setting or bios boot sequence select your pen drive as first bootable option. once your Windows 10 setup started then you can use your Windows 7 Key in Windows 10.

    You can use below links for guide or software.
