Windows 7 would probably work but the problem is they don't have a copy of Windows 7. And I'm not sure it would be legal for me to install my copy.

What makes me think it's a hardware problem though is I couldn't even boot into an Ubuntu live CD, so I'm worried that it will reboot in the middle of the Win7 installation. Getting a Windows 8 PC and buying Startisback would be another option.

@Marvin, that PC looks like it'll get the job done. Although I wish it would ship sooner (says 2-4 weeks shipping).
