Hi guys, I’m setting up a test system with some old spare parts I have and it won’t boot.
This cpu + motherboard combo used to be my old Minecraft server, so I know it works.
I’m trying to install windows on it but whenever I select my boot usb in bios I’ll see the windows logo for a split second and then the screen gets stuck on a black screen with an underscore in the top left.

I tried installing windows on this hard drive with a different PC and then putting it on this system. When I try to boot to this hard drive it won’t recognize it as a boot device and will tell me to restart and select a proper boot device.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks!
