    [SOLVED] Wintel P001, won't boot absolutely anything


    Hey guys,

    I have recently bought a Wintel Box. The device came with android and windows both installed (android x64 and windows 8.1 with bing 32bit). I did not like any of the installed versions so I thought I should wipe the drive and try to install windows 7. I did a cmd disk part wipe command through uefi windows restore cmd option and now the drive is completely empty. However, the computer would not boot absolutely anything. I have a few usb drives which have windows installed through rufus with MBR for uefi and hirens boot but neither seem to work. I boot from the bios menu as it recognises the USB but when i click on boot form usb the screen flashes and it comes back to the BIOS menu. I have tested the usb drives and they work on other computers. This one would not boot anything. The screen would flash for a second and it would go back to bios menu. Could you guys help me? Any ideas?

    Here's how it looks like and its specifications.

    That PC uses x86 uefi software
    Unless you have the option to enable "legacy/csm support" in the bios settings

    I believe that you are referring to your boot menu - not your Bios settings.. the bios settings will have several tabs or screens

    Install Windows 7 32-bit. If the installation is unsuccessful, install Windows 8/10 32-bit.
