    Good Morning sjv6871 !

    What EXACT model of your laptop?
    Is it a chromebook?
    Do you have an official and original copy of WIndows 10 with a valid key?

    Google has removed dual boot compatibility with Chromebooks

    I would wonder why you would want to do this at all though, your particular model of Chromebook only has a 16Gb hard drive and 2Gb RAM, installing Windows on this machine would bring it to a grinding halt - the space required to install windows would eclipse the available space on the hard drive (32Gb minimum with 64Gb recommended I think) you would have to install windows on a USB and then run it from there.  Even then it would not be a pleasent experience.

    You should look at options to dual-boot with Linux though, there is Crostini which is specifically for Chromebooks, you have an Intel chipset so you should be able to pick from a range of Linux distro's that would fit on the hard drive and it would be a lot faster and more stable than Windows could ever be on the same machine. Here's a link to a YouTube video that shows you how to install Linux on a Chromebook. 

    Hope this helps.
