It had been a windows machine with a dual boot for linux, but something got screwed up. I had to wipe the master boot record (MBR) and from what I remember I couldn't get a linux tool to work. I think what I did was get a windows install ISO or cd that had a boot loader repair tool or something like that. Sorry I don't remember anything more specific. But, once I got the master boot record unfucked, I could reformat and do whatever I wanted. Key was fixing the MBR.

Yeah that's got to be it. I'm a lazy Linux guy and usually just let Ubuntu do it's thing. Path of least resistance, man. I might need to just try to pop the hard drive into a different computer, install it, and worry about driver issues later.

Fixing the MBR looks like it's promising, thanks for the tip. I suppose an external CD/DVD drive would be needed but I'm sure there's a couple old Windows install discs around that can install/fix the MBR. I'm sure the little homeschooled kids I'm donating this to will have a blast learning Linux from scratch. I have a deep personal vendetta against Common Core, all it's corrupted fuckery, and want to see a world where most public schools are converted into apartments for lack of children. That can happen but it's going to take a long time and a lot of people checking out of the system and telling it to fuck itself.
