In general I'd say whichever OS your craptop was supplied with since it's most likely the only one for which your manufacturer provided working drivers.. That said, Win10 will install all the drivers it can find for your craptop, which is always the most tedious and annoying thing to do on craptops due to how manufacturers conveniently forget to update or to just keep the fucking drivers online; nevermind going to the Device Manager and figuring out which component is installed and whatnot. Win10 will either find the right drivers or install the generic ones; on Win7 you're on your own.

Don't waste your time with this crap.

MS basically allows unlimited re-use of Windows 10 keys. Find a computer with a legit CoA sticker for Windows 10 Pro and use that key to install Windows 10 on your computer. It will fail at first, but you can call a phone number and the automated system will ask you to enter in a very long string of numbers which generate another string of numbers which then activates Windows 10.

I've done this about 6 times so far with the same key. It also asks you how many times you've tried to use this key before, just answer 0.

MS wants everyone to use Windows 10 so they're basically giving it away if you're willing to jump through a couple hoops.

There are though. You can buy a MAK. You can also convert it to Digital License after activating with a MAK if you slmgr -ipk the oem_nonslp key. The reason for this digital license option is likely to cater for Windows 10 IoT enterprise devices which is basically LTSB with a different license on paper. Nevertheless, Kill Myself costs exactly nothing.

Honestly I can't stop myself from wondering why the company, that has always been relying on paid proprietary software as a business model, has been so persistent in providing the widest possible reach of their newest "most refined" OS across devices for free when their business has always relied on paid software..
So persistent to the point where they went out of their way to roll out an upgrade tool for win 7 and 8 (and vista?), made it 100% free and not a demo, and let the upgrading option available for such a long time.. As if they want it everywhere first and foremost..
They have even turned their eyes on non-genuine copies and upgraded them, and they keep making sure it's as up to date as possible..

I wonder what will happen when they've finally achieved that reach..
