I think that one of the reasons of installers like Slipstream is so that you can get all the relevent drivers added into the Windows installer (along with removing any bloatware) for your specific build. I've not needed to do it for a few years but from what I can remember one just points the program to the additionally required driver installers (.exes) and it goes in & extracts the relevent components and assimilates them into the OS installer.

I remember though it requiring a good 12hours of focused trial & error when doing the tweaking.

I'm somewhat assuming that Linux would be lighter than Windows 7 & 10; being current would it not install more easier than W7?

It's all a learning curve; I am well out of my depth at the moment but I have several operating systems to play with. 

Windows 10 Home which came with my first desktop computer in 2019. Got one product key for it. I have Windows 7 Home Premium with a retail product key and a preinstalled key that came with my Dad's old laptop. I should be able to use the retail W7 key to activate a second Windows 10 Home installation if I wanted to, according to online information that Microsoft authentication allows this. So for £50, I have access to W7 with the preinstalled key and can have a second W10 key by using my W10 installation disc; big win.

Then I have nine 64-bit Linux variants to try. Ubuntu 18.04.4, Fedora 31, Linux Mint 19.3, Kubuntu 18.04.2, Debian 9.9.0, Kali 2020.1b,Tails 4.4.1, OpenSUSE 15.1 and Elementary 5.1. They tend to come with all the drivers needed to use all the basic peripherals.
