After several days research I am more confused than when I started. Windows 10 in this build would likely be unworkable so some upgrade is necessary. Would I be better off to just buy a commercial build or to modify this one. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated as I am about to the point of going the latter route out of confusion.
