Thanks Dave, the more I search on t'internet, the more certain I am that it has been up'd to W10.
I too found the data sheet for it which is your first link, the Red AMD chipped one.
Never had an AMD machine before. I managed to get into BIOS and noted that "Legacy emulation is enabled", and I changed boot order from HDD first to USB First. Didn't notice if DVD was 2nd or 3rd, anyhow, the bu**er still ignored the Bootable Linux Mint Stick That I had tried to boot from!
I was hoping that I could at least have a root around in the Sys32 folder to see if I could find a note of the log in details!
Don't know what the heck I expected to find, but it looks like I'm not going to get the chance!
Thanks for helping, I'll keep on digging! :)
