Hi everyone,

I am still new to the custom build pc scene. I have built my gaming pc for about a year ago and it has been running just fine. I never tempered with it and no over clocking. Unfortunately, I really need help with my computer because this is also my work computer as well. I cannot seem to get my computer to finish the windows 10 install before giving e an endless cycle of BSOD. I thought maybe it was a bios problem so I tried M-flashing an updated bios but nothing worked so I reset the bios. I love my computer I would love to get any help that I can.

My build:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

MOBO: MSI MPG X570Gaming Edge wifi

RAM: Corsair vengeance RGB pro 16 GB

GPU: GIGABYTE Geforce RTX2060 super gaming OC 8 GB

PSU: Corsair RM850X
(used to be Corsair CM550)

MEMORY: Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB
(New: Samsung 970 EVO PRO M.2 500GB)



I wanted to clean everything out so I cleaned out my 1TB SSD drive and tried to reinstall windows 10 OS onto the M.2 SSD 500gb. I cleaned it out, then downloaded Windows 10 OS onto my flash drive to try install the OS. Now I am stuck, and I hope I did not mess up beyond repair. I appreciate any help I can get thanks! Please help this noobie!

Please use Microsoft utility-Create Windows 10 installation media for creating USB installation disk first and then use it for reinstalling windows 10 OS.

Have you completely removed the 1TByte SSD before trying to install Win 10?

What error(s) are you getting with the BSOD?

Yeah I unplugged the 1TB SSD.
The errors I am getting varies. At one point I was getting something about memory management then I get system Service exception.

Could be RAM, when you reset the BIOS did you load system defaults or a previously working config?
If you have 2 sticks of RAM try swapping them over.

The few things I can think of is ram, drives and windows 10 OS. I don’t think my GPU, CPU, PSU, or my MOBO are the issues.

You should only have bootable USB flash drive with the Win 10 install files 32 bit or 64 bit.
If you are doing a clean install from the booted USB then Win 10 shouldn't be the problem as it hasn't started yet.
If you have secure boot turned on in BIOS then turn it off, it can interfere with the install.

make sure if your using a USB Drive with the installer to have it formatted to NTFS as thats what its expecting to see for the installer to be in that file format.

I thought The format was suppose to be Fat32?
for Windows since windows 7 its expected NTFS ONLY. if its Fat32 it will not even see it. download Microsofts ISO to USB media Creation tool from here https://aka.ms/wudt and the first thing it will do is format your USB stick to NTFS as it needs that to function
