Is there a windows key on the Laptop if there is it will be on the bottom If not and you want a legit copy you will need to buy the OS of your choice . If your not so inclined to buy a key and copy you can always look at a less than legal route with Daz . Your best bet for an OS thats free is Linux ubuntu 15.10.

This will help with a windows install
