I'm able to boot from disk, get long white bar at bottom of screen, but after that just get flowery screen and nothing else happens. My computer is a Dell 8300. I tried disk in my laptop, Dell, and was able to boot-install Win7 on that, so disk is okay.
Any help would be greatly appreciated for my computer knowledge is beginner/novice.
Hi and welcome
I have an 8300 as well. It might be either a video driver or BIOS upgrade.. It is after all a bit old
Is there an OS on it now? can yoou safe boot (F8)? Can you go into bios (F12/F2)?
Let me know I can always boot mine
