I have this Gaming PC and I can't get an operating system in it. In this thread from an other discussion I have discussed some about it (https://pchelpforum.net/t/worthy.28884/)

If you need more information, just ask and I will get it.

I just want this PC fixed and running so I can sell it.

Thanks for any helping!!!

How about the 2nd question? Also you may have an option of installing Win 7. Also this pc being a 2008 pc,may not be up to spec's for Win 10.

Simply put no. The HDD needs to be in the machine that windows will be installed on.

if I've got this right, your problem is getting an OS onto the USB stick, yes?
you simply can't 'copy' the ISO image onto the USB device.
you need software that burns it so the USB is bootable.

I use PowerISO but there are plenty.

so the theory is, download your OS image as an ISO file.
'burn' that image to your USB stick via software that makes a bootable USB drive.

for Win10 you need an empty 8GB USB stick.

What steps did you use to create the disk?

Did you follow the instruction in Post # 6 to set the proper Booting order?

When the system is loading Ubuntu and or Windows (from the USB) what screens appear?
Any error message(s)?
Do you see any setup and or install screens?

Does Ubuntu load to the Desktop?

With both flash drives I had no screen showing anything about installing. I will post a pic of what is shows later for you to see. Thanks for helping to all.
