Here you need to be careful, your hands should be clean and not have oil or something similar. this is because your fingerprints may remain on the screen. The healthiest method is to use gloves.

While the computer is starting, there will be a question mark in a box on the screen. this is because it is a new disk and no system inside. Please see our other article for system setup. Good luck.
