So here is the story. My wife's computer was still on XP and I wanted to upgrade it because she complained about the speed, so I upgraded it to Windows 10. Apparently Windows 10 does not work for a computer as old as her Compaq CQ50 and was causing a number of difficulties (such as pretty much not working). So in order to at least have a working computer for her, I installed Ubuntu which she didn't really like, being a Windows person.
I have now purchased a copy of Windows 7 because I thought it should work on her computer. It was an online download and I wanted to boot from a USB, so I installed the iso on my USB using the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool. I was looking how to install it over Ubuntu and read where I needed to reformat the C: drive, so I did.
Everything was going well until start-up. It asked me if I wanted to upgrade from a previous edition of Windows or Custom to install a new system altogether. When I attempted to do the latter, I am getting the error that it can't install my Windows 7 because it won't install to the partition; that it needs to be installed as NTFS. The computer runs on BIOS, I don't even think NTFS was around when she got it.
So my question is, does anyone know how I can install it as BIOS and not NTFS?
Any help is much appreciated!!
