    Hi!
    I'm trying to put Windows on my son's iMac 20-inch, late 2009, has 2GB, plenty of space.
    Tables state that my model is compatible with Windows 7, 32bit - only. But would prefer Windows 8 or newer.
    He will be gaming.
    Just updated to El Capitan.
    Which Windows should (can) I install?

    Thanks so Much!

    Actually you can install 64-bit Windows 7 since it's a full 64-bit computer. Windows 8/8.1 and 10 aren't officially supported and trying to get the Boot Camp drivers working again is a rather frustrating experience to say the least. I'd probably just stick with Win7 on that machine honestly.
