Puchased 2 Think Centres from a local university. No operating system on either. Tried installing Win 10 with media creation tool on flash drive then the ISO on DVD. The Windows logo comes on the screen and freezes. After about a min, it says something went wrong and restarts only to the same result. Someone said I need drivers but can you install drivers without an operating system installed? the units originally had Win 7.
Mod: edited Subject line to add system type

Ok, these are both M5498A's which are not listed. So does that mean I can only install Win 7 or can I upgrade the processors and then install Win 10? What are my options?

I believe these are M90p Tower, model 5498 Detailed specifications - ThinkCentre M90p (3282, 3652, 5450, 5498, 5852, 6590)
The only processors known to work are listed in the specs above, and in the HMM if any added during it's production run, all are a couple of generations before official Win 10 support. Win 7, 8, and 8.1 are supported.
