But ... Would I want to do that? No - probably not. 1GB RAM was a slug with just Win 7: start throwing Win 10 and VS into it and you are going to be thrashing the HDD to death with paging. Even Win 7 in 1GB was painful!

I'd strongly suggest it's time to upgrade: you'll need a bigger HDD as well, almost certainly so I'd look for a good cheap Windows Box second hand on FleaBay, Gumtree, or Craigslist. Your proceeccor is what? Ten years old? And i5 2410M was a mobile device so it's a lot more concerned with power saving than performance.
