I got a 32 bit computer from my school and I fixed it up with a graphics card and HDD (cause the school took them out before giving it to me). Obviously a brand new HDD has no OS so I've tried booting from a CD, DVD, and USB, all with no luck. The bios doesn't even give an option to boot from USB.
I've tried changing boot order in bios, still no luck. All I get when I start the computer is first the Sony Vaio logo then a screen giving all the hardware specs and finally a screen saying "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device". Please help :`(
