PC with no HDD: How do I boot up in New HDD?
« on: December 16, 2017, 05:19:10 pm »
I bought a cheap PC without an HDD, and I bought a used HDD separate. 

Now I need to connect them. 

How do I do it, and which distro is the best one for the job?  Also why is it the best one for the job?

And last of all how do I know if the PC is 64bit or 32bit?


Thanks

Not sure I understand the questions...

a) just put the drive in, then boot a LiveUSB and allow the installer to erase the drive and install .. most will offer this as a single click option.

b) you're asking which is the best distro on the Peppermint forum ?
