I see this today with old versions of Windows. Let's just say that XP and older versions of Windows are too hard to install for most owners.
What to do? Insist the machine's maker supply you with a ready to use PC with the version or Windows, Linux or DOS you want.
Is it possible that a motherboard would not accept the installation of Windows.
But it would accept Linux in different varieties of distro's.
If so can you visibly tell where the problem exist.
