The problem with Windows 10 is the GPU, for which Intel never released drivers.  You may be able to get Windows 7 drivers to run in compatibility mode, but with only 4G RAM, Windows 10 will be exceedingly slow -- even more so if the system is running a hard drive rather than an SSD.

All versions of Windows earlier than 10 are now end of life, having seen no security update in as much a few years.

So:  if you really want to run this system, consider a lighter version of Linux -- it's just not suited to running any secure version of Windows.
