    Clone the 32G data onto a larger drive, install the larger drive, upgrade.

    I suspect some of the cheap mSATA drives on eBay will work.

    32GB drive? How old is the computer that houses it? If the specs of the machine can support Win10, then take KA8NCR's advice.

    Partition Win10 into two Win5's.

    That Netbook will not run Win 10. You need more RAM also.

    It is a waste of time trying it.

    Me Thinks. :oops:

    Microsoft (with the latest upchuck) has a 32 GB requirement itself. Either upgrade the HD, or don't even try.:( Your computer may not support a HD larger than 32GB, and you may not be able to activate Win 10 with a replacement of ANY size.

    What version of Windows 10 did it come with ?

    There is a watered down version, That may be all that it will work with.

    Good Luck.

    What rig control software do you use?

    If you only use it for rig control on your FT-817, just put a skinny Linux in it. Flrig runs just fine in Linux.
