Tiny 11 install not working

I’m an inexperienced pc enthusiastic and I am currently trying to troubleshoot and fix some issues with a precision t1600 that was given to my cousins by a friend. Like I said in the title I’m trying to install tiny 11 to replace the old windows 7. I followed a yt tutorial to create the install media. I’m choosing to boot from the usb drive and it is just giving me a blank screen. Anyone know what I’m doing wrong? Could it possibly just be a slow hdd? I left it to think on the blank screen for about two hours so I think it would’ve moved by now if I was doing something right.

The T1600 may still be too old for Tiny11.  @Chino de Oro would have a much better idea if Tiny11 or Win11 can work on it.

@bradthetechnut​ thank you for the response, tiny 11 is meant to run on some of the least demanding hardware, and it more than meets the ram requirements, I may try Linux or win 7

The blank screen issue during installation could be caused by any reason.  The tiny 11 was not prepared properly or the system hardware has pre-existing issue.

The T1600 should be able to run Windows 11 in unsupported mode.  The hardware is supporting 2nd gen processors, 8 GB of non-ECC or 16 GB of ECC memory.  Give it a SATA solid state drive and you can bring life into that system again.

If you really want to try out Win 11, search around for instructions to create a Win 11 installation drive with Rufus bypass options.

Doesn't this also work? - Load SSD in Dell PC that qualifies for Win11, then transfer it to T1600.
