For all but the most obscure hardware, Windows 10 ought to include drivers.

 

Computer and motherboard manufacturers are typically useless at keeping drivers up to date for computers that aren't current models.  You can usually get newer drivers from the chipset manufacturer.  So if you;re motherboard is Intel, go to Intel. If your wifi is Netgear - go to Netgear etc.

 

It's also worth noting that Windows 7/8/10 are all variants of Windows NT 6 under the hood and drivers for one of those are likely to be compatible with the others.

 

At the very least, if you have no other PC, make sure you have drivers for the wifi adapter.  As long as you can connect to the internet then you can download any other needed drivers after installing Windows 10.
