those came out in 2005, pretty old hardware. I would expect that you could install with the generic drivers that windows 8 or windows 7 provides. Problem is that if something does not work no OEM will provide updated drivers for your old hardware. Often, even a simple thing like a bad battery will cost more to replace than the machine is worth.

You can run the windows compatibility assistant and see if it knows of a reason that you can not upgrade.

overall, I would keep my old OS on that machine and look at a cheap replacement. (just my opinion)
