Did the PC come with a pre-installed OS? If so which one?

IGNORE THIS POST I don't usually see the GRUB version of the Live Session, which does have 4 options.

"on start the pc give 4 opzions...when try to charge version x64 (second option)" This is not normal, not 'official'. A standard Mint ISO... linuxmint-18.2-xfce-64bit.iso ...boots with six options...
  • Start Linux Mint
    Start in compatibility mode
    OEM install
    Integrity check
    Memory test
    Boot from local drive
...so who says it's 'official', where did it come from, what's on it?
While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named "manual".

@ Giamma267

Seems your budget Asirox Orion computer is only available in Italy. The limit here for image attachment is only 100kB. Try typing out the screen error message.

Normally, we boot the Live Linux DVD to start a Live session as a test-drive, especially to check for hardware incompatibility. Then we click "Install Linux" icon on the Live desktop. This will kick off the installation process and open the Install Wizard.

Ok, TY

Go to make a USB-stick by myself.
Can you give me a link to refer?

Other Live USB burner programs are Rufus, unetbootin, Universal USB Installer/pendrivelinux, USB Image Writer, etc.
....... ISO DVD burner programs are Imgburn(for Windows), Brasero, xfburn, k3b, etc.

@ bradon

It is not normal for a Live Linux DVD to require kernels to be loaded. Better get a new one.
