    It depends if you can find drivers for the laptop or not. As a minimum, you would need "chipset" , video, audio, WiFi, and ethernet drivers. Check the compaq web site (I think they are HP now) to see if windows 10 drivers exist.

    Maybe, maybe not -  if you upgrade windows 7 using the media upgrade tool it may maintain the dual boot manager or it may overwrite it meaning you would have to reinstall unbuntu again to restore dual boot.
