So, I have a bit of a predicament. I have a slightly older laptop, which was originally designed for Vista. I need to wipe it and get it ready for sale (going to use the money to get myself a newer, proper laptop)
The laptop does not have drivers for Win8, and some of the video drivers feel... jimmied. I had to use some 3rd party drivers to get it to work. However, Vista sucks, but it has drivers for it.
I can't use 7, because it's not worth it to me to buy it ($90 OS for a ~$200 laptop). I have multiple Vista licenses from deprecated systems that have been parted out, and Win 8 is only $15.
