You can buy a windows 10 key for relatively cheap online, download windows 10 and create a bootable USB key to install it and you're good to go. Lots of tutorials online around how to create a bootable USB key. Not going to get into the Linux vs Windows discussion but if you're asking the above question Linux is probably isnt the road to go down as its not really capable of "doing everything" without hassle.

It's easy to install Windows on your own, all you need is a USB and another PC/Laptop running Windows. You can download a program from the Microsoft website which allows you to turn your USB into a 'setup disk' for Windows. You then buy an activation key from ebay and your done.

An error message.

But simply: You'll create your bootable USB key with windows on it, plug it into the computer and tell it to boot from the USB key. It will then install windows onto the hard drive. Next time you boot up it will launch windows.

And as mentioned you'll need another computer or laptop to create this bootable USB install key.

Correct, you'll get the option during the install process to choose which drive to use.
Your mileage may vary, but i had an awful experience with this company last Christmas. I’d never use them again.

If you pick the right distro it will do most things people need from the intial install. It's just many people are scared of it because of it's history.

Modern linux distros are fairly user friendly nowadays. And certainly do more than a fresh Windows install.

if you do get the choice, I would recommend choosing ssd to install the windows 10 as it your computer will start up significantly faster.
Can build it yourself for ~£265 if so inclined with an actual branded PSU


(1x8GB instead of 2x4GB and generic case, change to suit)

I know it's cheap but man does an A320 board put me off, obviously perfectly fine for any kind of office work but if this is "kids first gaming pc" which with the ram upgrade it's a good option for then I think looking for a b series board will be worth the extra cost in case they ever get into upgrading.
