Ok, these may sound like a really stupid questions but just remember I'm new to this. Can a PC run without an operating system? I'm going to build a PC but I don't know exactly how you would get an operating system on it without it running. Also, how exactly does buying an OS work? I see that this website points you to physical copies of Windows but how would I Install them? If it's by disk then that's a waste because my computer won't have a disk reader. Do I even have to buy an OS right now or will a systemless computer be able to somehow access the Internet and download one from there? If someone could please give me a crash course in Operating Systems it would be greatly appreciated.
