"I can't get Windows 10 to install on a brand new build.


  1. Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3HP
  2. AMD A6-6400K
  3. Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8GB)
  4. SanDisk SSD PLus 240GB
  5. WD Blue 1TB

These are all new components. Windows has never been installed before. 

What I have tried:

  1. 1. Created USB Installation Media and Bootable Drive via Windows Media Creation Tool
  2. 2. Downloaded Windows 10 ISO from Windows Media Creation Tool - created bootable drive with Rufus
  3. 3. Burned downloaded ISO to DVD

All resulted in the same experience - get the Windows loading screen (icon and spinning circles), then the spinning circles stop - PC reboots. 

I have gone into the bios and disabled Fast Boot, disabled Secure Boot, Enabled CSM, Disabled UEFI / Enabled Legacy Boot, and almost every combination of those settings. All the same result - freeze on Windows loading screen. I even got frustrated and attempted to install Windows 7, which ended with the same result. I have built numerous PCs and never run into this issue with a Windows installation. Help me! Please."
