Question Is this hardware capable to install Fedora?

Hello, my friend has a ‘legacy’ hardware whose motherboard and hard drives were OEM by HP and before 2009, and i have no time to check out its BIOS device if shown with UEFI OS compatibility (UEFI has been since 2005), before it can be installed with Fedora 26.

Re: Is this hardware capable to install Fedora?

Hi, legacy BIOS is still supported, there shouldn't be an issue as long as the system has hardware later than Intel Pentium III or AMD Duron and at least 1.5GB RAM. 2GB or more is recommended though.

For older systems, especially if using integrated chipset graphics, using a lightweight desktop such as the XFCE or MATE environments is highly recommended.
