Thank again for all the recent advice. I have one question. I installed Ubuntu (from a 20.04 flash drive I did a while back) and checked the option to download additional software. It was then up and running. I then had updates available. They were installing, and then the computer said a restart was needed. I clicked restart and rather than restart as expected it went to what I think was a grub menu. Ubuntu was highlighted, I hit the enter key. It said "unpacking failed" (forget if before or after) and started up. Everything seems to be fine, but I am sending this email in case if anyone knows if I will have problems.
I tried googling "Ubuntu unpacking failed" and se references to initramfs, but can't say if my message said this. It flashed quickly. I'm confused on what I read there anyway.
FYI on the bios to make things work I changed:
PTT to off
Secure Boot Enable to off
Changed RAID to AHCHI
The machine seems blazing fast compared to the previous one.
Materials much more cheaply made, though.
Surprised me that there was no Windows CD or label with license number.
