    I need help with getting windows to work.
    I currently have linux mint installed on my mac. I also uninstalled mac os because it's bad. So I don't think I can use bootcamp to fix it. I installed windows and I get this error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (igdkmd64.sys)
    How can I fix this?

    You have to use Bootcamp to install Windows on your machine because you'll want to use that to partition the drive and also have the drivers needed to make Windows work. If you're not going to use Bootcamp (or can't) you might be a tough spot. Since I would NEVER dream of running Windows, I have no practical information beyond this.

    "to fix it" Fix what?

    When you say you uninstalled mac OS 'because it's bad" Did you you mean bad as in you didn't get on with it so got rid of it or bad as in something had gone wrong with it?

    Have you already tried googling "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (igdkmd64.sys)". Seems to be lots of advice available on this error and it's causes/solutions.
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.
