I bought a new computer and installed windows for a pen-drive and when I install it on the new computer it says I didn't find any drives. Please help me fast.

I couldn't find any HP specs for the model number you provided.  I found specs for similar numbers but all of them came with Windows 10 preloaded.  So, what did yours come with?

Thanks for the link and while I do not read Portuguese, I can read some of the specs -- an they say it came with FreeDOS.

 

Lots of folks have bought those to save money and they come here, asking how to install Windows, and I have yet to see any standard method that works.  You would think it would be a simple matter of making a Windows 10 install USB stick and booting from that, but that simply does not work.

 

If I were you, I would return it and buy a different model -- one that comes with Windows already preloaded.

You would have to buy a key anyway because the FreeDOS computer does not entitle you to a free version of Windows.

 

What I am saying is that lots of folks have tried to install Windows on these FreeDOS machines and I have yet to see a method that works, otherwise, I would pass that along.

 

It actually would cost less to buy a PC with Windows already preloaded than to buy a FreeDOS PC and then go out and buy Windows 10 to put on it.

This intel is from the 11th generation does it not interfere?
