  1. Context: I am planning a new PC build. My previous PC is completely totaled and has no use. At all. The only other PC I have are some Chromebooks. So, I am building A new PC. The only problem is, I have no PC to actually download windows off of. I do some research and, I found a way to make a bootable usb drive on chrome. Question: I am now windows expert or a generally smart person, but the recovery software I am using supports only .bin files, not the usual .iso. If I have a usb drive with a '.bin file of windows' on it, can I use it to boot into windows? Sources: https://technastic.com/create-a-bootable-usb-on-chrome-os/ -here, I must convert the iso file I download to a bin file and create a bootable drive from it. I am wondering how if I can use that .bin file to boot. IDK if that even matters.
  2. Yea um... I just linused my PC and broke it. but this lets me get around to building that new build I've been planning. But I have a big problem. The only other computers I have access to are the array of chromebooks I have for some reason. I am not an expert at installing windows, but I am wondering If I can install windows off of the Microsoft website, off of a chromebook, to a thumbdrive. Please help, I haven't properly game in like a day and a half.

When the R3 3100 is available, It will add another 100 dollars to the price. The Main reason I am planning a build I am not buying until August-September is to see how the price will change. I downgraded form the 2600 and 1660s for the sake of my budget This is the Full setup, including a monitor, Mic kit, Desk and most peripherals. My path for upgardes will be +8gb of ram, 1660s, and then a new CPU when It is needed. I am planning on using my external Drives for Games and media files.

  8. I really just want to actually use it on my tv, but I am a pcmr so I really don't have any consoles. I already have java, and I don't like win 10.
  9. Some of my friends have a realm, which is on bedrock. I do not have bedrock, so I am buying it. I have a fire tv stick, so I want to put it to use and use it for it Minecraft fire tv edition. I am attempting to buy it, but it says my fire tv is not supported. I assume I needed a controller. Before I buy it, I want to know FOR SURE that the controller is the problem, and if there are any other things I need to know to play Minecraft on this version. Here is the screenshot of the Amazon page, I want to get it on 'Patrick's fire' but as you can see, it is not supported.
