Purchasing a computer without an operating system

We aim to provide quality equipment and service and as such wish to supply systems that you can simply turn on and start work. We are happy to supply computers without an operating system but ask you to consider the following:

  • It is likely that your computer requires driver software for its motherboard, video, sound, modem and other devices. It is necessary for the correct driver for each device to be loaded onto your computer for them to work and your computer to function properly.
  • The operating system must be installed before any other software, including the device drivers, can be loaded onto your computer.
  • If you are unsure how to load an operating system and the device drivers, we suggest you purchase one with your computer or provide one and ask us to load it before taking the computer. We can then load all the correct device drivers for you.
  • Please note: after-sales service work involving device drivers is not covered under warranty. This information is detailed on the warranty section of your purchase invoice.
