Hi:

 

Your PC can only be updated to BIOS v7.16 which was only written to be run on Windows 7.

 

If you are trying to install anything newer than a nVidia GT(X)6xx, it won't work.

 

Newer graphics cards require the PC to have BIOS v8.1x or newer in order to work.

Thanks, I guess its time for a new mother board.
