I'm decommissioning my old 2003 server which started out as Sempron in 2006 and was upgraded with C2D from some HP desktop around 2012.

I decided to build a desktop in smaller case because I need desktops with optical drives to read my old CD-Rs and DVD-Rs and put any useful stuff on NAS. I went through around 50 DVDs and all of the 10-15y old backups which were used rarely could be read.

Since HP BIOS doesn't offer boot from USB I need to find blank CD or DVD (the ones I have are too scratched) in order to burn Linux installer. I'm about to make a tour of local gas stations since it's late.
