It may be just too old. If you can't even get a USB to boot by holding down the Option key and selecting EFI, then I'm out of ideas sorry. That at the very least, should be enough to get started.

What is the OS on your pc is it windows 10 or windows 8.1 or windows 7?
With windows you may be able to convert MBR to GPT, but I am not sure.
You will need to make the final installation in gpt too, but your HDD should be GPT already.
I will try when i can, now i have not windows machine.

Is there a way to convert the LL image to GPT?
No, but there is a way to make bootable usb without repartitioning it. Make your usb use GPT partition table with gparted, then make one partition to it I would use fat32 and finally use program called universal usb installer on windows or on wine on linux to get LL installer to that partition. But I am not sure if LL can work with GPT at all.
