That is a specialized point of sale terminal. The teardown video --

gives insight to the guts.
256MB RAM RAM won't support much.

I agree with the first thread, the BIOS is intended to run an embedded OS and you will probably not succeed in installing a traditional OS.

Could I use a cd rom and put a windows installer in it?

I have no idea. It may not even allow booting from a CD. It is a specialized piece of hardware. It was designed to run an embedded OS for things like cash registers and auto diagnostic machines.

Why are you interested in this device?
min just interested in it don’t know why might just use it for parts but it’s worth a try

sorry buddy but as we know that windows before XP doesn't support boot via USB. so the only way to boot is a disk which is done via CD from. Really sorry that I couldn't help you buddy. thanks for asking this knowledgable question.
