make sure you aren't using this version of Rufus and make sure you aren't using legacy bios mode

Yes

yeah, for sure fix that

UEFI is a hard requirement

and even if it wasn't, legacy mode is terrible for gaming performance

you'd do that through your bios, not through windows
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Oh How can I do that?
tryhardsoccermomswag
in your BIOS settings
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
I’ve checked everywhere on my bios I can’t find anything like that I’ve checked google And YouTube Nothing
tryhardsoccermomswag
idk what happened or going on but what desktop environment are you using kde or gnome?
Stockpostalman

Kde
tryhardsoccermomswag
flash this
tryhardsoccermomswag
then: wait, what GPU brand and do you want game mode? because you can install stock kinoite then rebase to bazzite in case our ISOs are messing with something although i don't think it's that, but it can confirm if you did something wrong flashing it actually ignore all of this. maybe you should reflash the bazzite ISO with fedora media writer or balena etcher as opposed to rufus but do this as a last resort^

Nivida

ok if you do the fedora kinoite method after installing kinoite and reach the desktop, open Konsole and enter:
rpm-ostree rebase ostree-unverified-registry:ghcr.io/ublue-os/bazzite-nvidia:stable
rpm-ostree rebase ostree-unverified-registry:ghcr.io/ublue-os/bazzite-nvidia:stable
and wait for it to rebase (takes a while and there's no indicator but the terminal will output to reboot your system when it's done)

Sorry but this is my first Linux thing
tryhardsoccermomswag
ok then just try reflashing the ISO again with Fedora Media Writer im not sure whats going on. if kyle's suspicion is right about legacy BIOS, and your system doesn't support UEFI (which usually means it has to be ancient) then you can't use bazzite on it
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Yeah I think it might be I have an old system From 2012 to be specific
tryhardsoccermomswag
is the nvidia GPU from that time too? like the whole system is from 2012 UEFI has existed for years before 2012 so it's not that
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
No it’s a 1030
tryhardsoccermomswag
oh ok
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Yup I’m still looking for for the UEFI thing I check all the options on bios
tryhardsoccermomswag
it most likely is UEFI if it's from 2012
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Yes
tryhardsoccermomswag
so it's something else
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Could be Rufus
tryhardsoccermomswag
yeah use fedora media writer

I have concerns that the Nvidia image is going to work on this one:

machine is over 10 years old. Does it have an SSD?

good catch, this is unsupported by Nvidia completely dropped all support for it
Noel

Also if this machine has an i3, it is going to be VERY slow to configure kmods on boot.
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
It’s an i7

You'll be limited to your intel igpu zero support for the GPU you have I don't think it's worth continuing
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
So it’s going to bottle neck
Noel
Noel3mo ago
right, the nvidia drivers we ship in Bazzite don't support the nvidia card that comes with these machines. due to it being over 10 years old.
Stockpostalman
Stockpostalman3mo ago
Magical So what other os you recommend?
1/4 Life
1/4 Life3mo ago
I think Windows is your best bet until you upgrade your hardware to be quite honest Nvidia dropped all support for your card under Linux and Linux gaming really requires a vulkan capable GPU in the first place
Noel
Noel3mo ago
Even Windows doesn't really support this hardware that well. I looked at their drivers page and the newest drivers it has directly from Dell are drivers for Windows 8.1.

Fun Well thank you guys for the help
Noel

no worries! There are plenty of options for you to upgrade to where you will have a much better time. If you are trying to do an HTPC with bazzite on it, there are a lot of reasonable options out there.

Yeah well for now I’m just going to keep windows When I get a new system I’m going to run it Bye bye
