No Operating System [HARDWARE STILL TESTED]

Operating System

If you have an existing, legal license of Windows that you want to install - or if you would prefer to load a version of Linux we don't offer - selecting this option will allow you to get a system with no operating system installed. That means it will take a while to get set up on your end before the computer is really usable, but it can save you money compared to getting an extra copy of Windows you may not really need. No matter what you select for the OS, though, we run all of the same benchmarks, and burn-in tests to ensure that your computer hardware is working well before shipping it to you.

This is a great option for those who are comfortable installing their own operating system and dealing with the complications that can arise doing so. By having us install your operating system you know it will arrive with the latest patches and drivers already installed. We will also be able to provide you with system recovery disks making it simple to return the system back to its original state. This peace of mind may override saving a few dollars up front.

I have had a hard time getting my hardware and games to work correctly with this OS installed. I highly recommend considering an alternative. In addition, If you do not have us take care of the OS for you, we cannot load up the proper drivers or make a restore DVD for you.

By default, Puget sets all SATA controllers to AHCI mode. Please notify your sales representative if you will be installing an OS that does not support AHCI (Windows XP, etc.)
