Hi

Dunno.

Best solution is to use a LIVE distro, and list all the hardware needing drivers (use Windows for that) and the CLI.

Once you know the Live Distro works, you can then install it.

I suggest....  https://lubuntu.net/downloads/

 

If in doubt please ask.

@Lil_Boy_Blue: Thank you for the suggestion. I am going to buy this PC if it is possible to install Linux(Ubuntu). So is there a way to check before buying?

 

Regards,

Devraj

and ask the seller to see it boot from your own device?
