I wish you luck unless you know someone who has old dusty stock of Win7. 
Win7 hasn't been available for purchase for over 2 years. Support for 
Win7 will cease (no more security patches) in January 2020. You should 
tell them to upgrade to Win10. But be sure you read Woody Leonhard's 
advice (on about which version to install and how to avoid 
Microsoft's update madness. If your customer has computers that are 
connected to the Internet, and they have Win7 installed after MS support 
stops, they're asking for major trouble.
