Windows 7: Installing Windows 10 from Windows 7 non-genuine, PC factory reset ok?

Installing Windows 10 from Windows 7 non-genuine, PC factory reset ok?

My Acer Desktop PC says that the Windows 7 installed is not genuine, the message saying it is not genuine often pops up and also shows a black screen.

I have wanted to install to Windows 10 for a week now but I need to know if maybe factory resetting my PC to a new PC, would that restore my Windows 7 non-genuine to genuine or would I need to buy a fully licensed Windows 7 and then hopefully upgrade to Windows 10?

Any suggestions or help would be fully appreciated :) thanks in advance!
