That is a old computer, maybe around 2009. My 2009 Modified Dell server power edge SC430 with a Pentium D 925 CPU 3.4GHZ is running windows 7 pro 64Bit with 4GB memory, max for that model. Need to Know what the serial number is or the number off the Motherboard like "MS-7104" to be able to help. How are you changing operating systems to try? You can't just take a hard drive out of another computer and expect it to work. You have to load the operating system on the hard drive that is on the same motherboard. I believe MSI made most of their motherboards.
