Hey all! So I just picked up a new (used) computer without a hard drive. I went out and bought a patriot pyro 2.5 SSD. A couple plugs later, I thought i was good to go. So i went about getting an ISO for Windows 8.1 Pro, managed to get it on over to a flash drive since i dont currently have a disk large enough and tried to put it in.
FIRST PROBLEM. I turn on the computer and there is an error message saying the system fan isnt working and to shut down to avoid damaging the computer. I've checked and all three fans are working.
SECOND. Once i hit continue, windows startup goes normally, i put in the product key, and it is telling me to put the files somewhere, but when i go to place them into the new SSD, it wont show up.
I'm pretty new on the whole building aspect of computer and am really at a loss here on what to do next. Any and all help is appriciated!
