Booting/installing from non-EFI machine?

Recommended Posts

Playing around with an old computer that I had gathering dust. Just managed to boot it to Ubuntu so i know the USB stick and the computer is OK. My problem is it's an old non-EFI machine (Legacy BIOS only) and I can't seem to boot it with the boot ISOs I normally use (they are GPT images).
Is there any way around this to get the machine to boot and install XPEnology?
When I tried booting with my working XPEnology USB stick (that I made for my VM install of it) I got an grub error, unrecognized file system, and it failed to boot.
