GeneralA noisy burst and smelly smoke... Pin

And wife's laptop died... As it is an old HP we decided to get a new, but meanwhile (3-5 days) she has to work, so I put her HD in my PC and powered it up...
No keyboard/mouse and not network (internet)...
After messing with the BIOS (!) to enable USB legacy emulation and ask to fake some basic LAN instead of the 'gigabyte' labeled I have, Windows was finally loading...
After an other 30 minutes of installing drivers from the original CD (of the motherboard), it left only with the memory controller unidentified, but still works...
Not exactly... It is so sloooooooooooooooooooooooooow, you can die! It is also pops-up a message about too new CPU and how they sorry that they can not install security updates (the OS totally up to date!), every 15 minutes or so...

I think I will try to convince wife to move to Fedora or Ubuntu...
