HELP.

Built my first pc using all new parts except for my old HDD and SSD. 
I was previously running windows 7 on my SSD but when upgrading my pc I wasn't able to use any USB ports to connect my keyboard or mouse into once windows 7 was booted because my processor wasn't compatible with windows 7. 
I created boot media installation on USB and put it on my HDD as I couldn't put it on my SSD. 
How do I delete windows 7 from my SSD and put windows 10 on it to use as my boot drive instead of my HDD??

You can use your old PC to "upgrade" to windows 10 via the built in install feature, I believe it's pretty convenient if you can get it to work.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Is there any way I can do it on my new pc? Would I just have to delete the windows folder in my SSD and move the windows folder from my HDD to the SSD?

The only way to do it on the new PC is to wipe the SSD and then install Windows on the empty drive.

That really won't work.  The best thing you could do would be to do a clean, fresh install of Win10 on the SSD.  Make sure that you have all the important files you want to keep backed up somewhere.  Documents, pictures, letters, etc. should be backed up prior to doing any major drive configuring.  Best thing you could use would be a flash drive.  Then download the Windows Media Creation Tool to another flashdrive and go from there.  It's pretty self-explanatory and is not that difficult to use.  Just follow the onscreen prompts and you'll do fine.
