Note: If you do not have, or are unsure if you have 64 bit Java 8, please follow this guide before proceeding.

I wonder if this would be less confusing by switching the navigation text from client to download wallet?


I want to install the windows 10 on my new HP laptop with OS Linux. I also tried to contacted [hp support Canada] to know the process but yet not get any response from there. Can I get the guidance to install the windows 10 on my laptop?
