New HD but old OS disk with Windows 7...old HD is about to fail. New HD in hand but old OS disk with Windows 7....I downloaded Windows 10 Media Creation tool onto a USB flash drive...so I think I can reinstall Windows 10, but what do I do for OS?
 
You should be able to reinstall the original OS, aka 7, then once it is up and working, update to 10.

Or, you can just put the 10 you installed on a USB and connect that USB to the laptop and install that. If you put it on the USB correctly, it should work.
