Never done it on a Win10 machine, but have done it on a WinXP netbook I did not want to scrap. Worked great. I never use the dual boot as I have no use for XP and connecting to the internet with XP is asking for a shit storm. Just ask the limeys today.
I've done it on computers running other versions of Windows but is wasn't nearly that complicated.
I have an old desktop that was running XP or maybe Vista and I replaced that completely with Ubuntu.
I haven't even turned that computer on this year.
I would like to get rid of it but I can't even give it away.
I should get on it more just to mess with it but I have three laptops.
