I think you have to have a legal copy of windows 7 or8 though, and I'm not aware of how you prove it as I last did it some time aback. I currently have no windows 10 machine that works as I installed it on an old amd chipped machine whos motherboard died when a power supply blue up after a mains surge. I intend to buy a new laptop before Christmas and that will come with 10, and although I ham a little worried about the current trend toward no keypad and function keys configured as media keys, I imagine the latter can be fixed by a sighted person going into the bios.
If it has the deregistered dll files recently encountered on the cloned Lenovo and other makes then that seems to be a fixable problem now with perhaps a batch file or script.
I'd like a laptop with keypad, merely cos I'm lazy, and despite what a certain Jonathan Mozen might say to try to convince me otherwise!
