    Your English is fine I can fill in the gaps from what good translate tries to say :)

    It would seem to me that your BIOS has has not been configured correctly to recognize the hard drive as the boot drive for the OS.

    Now regarding the OS I would recommend Windows 8.1 for this case as it has improvements over Windows 8. However the choice is up to you.

    The devil is in the detail....

    .. other languages are not freely available - your key will activate it though
