Try Sierra or High Sierra and see if one of those works. Your hardware is much too new for Mavericks to work, Yosemite as well. Older versions of macOS have no support for newer hardware because it didn't exist yet when those versions were released. Apple doesn't add support later on, they move on to a new macOS version every year.

Here's a guide from someone that installed Mojave recently on their 7040 Dell Optiplex.
Thanks, i realized that much too late. Just wish i could find solution for my wake function and sound. Slowly but surely.
