Well...what is it that you intend to do with this system?

Without an O/S...a system is pretty useless, unless you use it as a doorstop, paperweight, etc.

What do you want to use this system for?

Looks like your computer can boot from a USB drive.

You can create a persistent Linux flash drive that will boot the
computer and you can write to it, too.
