    I think your pc needs to have winows 7 or 8.1 installed, windows 8 don't get the free upgrade.

    Run Command Prompt as Administrator (right click on it), then do
    Code:
    cd C:\
    del Windows.old
    rmdir Windows.old
    You'll probably get confirmation requests.

    when i type del windows.old it asks me if im sure so i say yes then when i try rmdir windows.old it says its not empty do i need to wait for a while before trying the second command?
    i tried to use cd c:\windows.old and then try to delete a folder in there and lots of files say access is denied

    Yes. I haven't removed mine yet because I want to make sure there aren't any problems, but it's a huge folder so it will take awhile.

    If it still doesn't work, right click on Windows.old and unchecked Read Only. Repeat everything.

    Do tablets have Disk Cleanup? If so, use that and click the option to clean system files. It will reload and let you delete the previous Windows install
