There’s nothing on the pc I would like so I attempted reinstalling the Working system by booting from a USB with the .iso file obtain from Ubuntu web page. I additionally tried Win 8.1 .iso which I’ve the important thing.
The Bios boot menu has:
USB Disk 2
Inner CD/DVD Rom Drive
Pocket book Arduous Drive
in that order.
I’ve modified the BIOS booting sequence with the USB first and the HDD on the backside.
I get the message “an working system wasn’t discovered”
