I'm looking at buying a new laptop. I run Debian Linux as my primary operating system; however, I would like the option of booting up Windows 7 once in a while.
How can I be totally sure a machine will run Windows 7? I will have absolutely no opportunity to return it if it doesn't; I'll have to get it right the first time.
Please, no comments about how Windows 7 is end of life, is not maintained, is not protected against the latest security exploits, is not the latest and greatest, or that anything it can do can be done in the current version as well.
I trust Windows 7 (sort of) and will not move on.
