    By the way how things are turning out, it could might just be the CPU. I remember a case where a user was unable to install Windows as well. The cause was a bad CPU core. He disabled it them one by one and found the bad one.

    I called the shop today and its going back to be tested. I am afraid that there receive the cpu and nothing will shown there end and I get it back and stilbe suffering the same issues. Part of me really doubt its the CPU as i said before would it allow a memtest, and to post if it was bad?

    What an annoying past few days. Now the turn around is 5-7 days and id guess at least 3/4 before i have an answer.

    Hi juststarting,

    I wanted to post this a few days ago but i just joined forum and had to wait.

    last thusrsday (7th) just upgraded my MB/CPU/RAM. maximus III hero, 6700k, 2x8Gb kingston HYPER x DDR 2400
    and i kept my gtx 770 waiting for pascal. also I alredy had a crucial m500 480gb ssd.

    Got them a the computer shop to swap all the parts(1300$ in canada so..) and brought it home to install windows myself.(they did bios update to 1302)
    was told at the puter place to install windows 7 & first and do all the upgrades, then install windows 10 since i have never used windows 10 and validated it with my windows 7 pro key.
    I started installing windows 7 had some issues with the mouse not working but plugging in a new G500s made it work ( ibought like 4 of of them last year cause they were on sale and i love them)
    I have since read the the asus tutorial on how to do this proprely (thanks Chino) somehow I got it working without doing it.

    Downloded the windows 10 usb upgrade tool installed it all was fine.

    Saturday has some spare time installed all the asus bloatware and did the 5 way optimazation on ai suite 3 , OC to 4.8 thought wow this is great and easy, I'm not new to computers but hey if it does it itself why not, had things to do didnt touch it till sunday.

    now sunday the **** starts, try to do a restart, puter hangs, screen goes black all the fans are running led's are on on my case the only way to reboot is to power off the PSU.

    after a few times of this, I said **** this, I got into BIOS reset it to default values to get rid of OC settings, and decide to reformat as suspected the asus ai suite was ****, plugged in the usb stick with windows 10 and it did the same thing exactly as the photos you posted. would start to load and post the same error message .

    what i then did is put my windows 7 cd in and installed that, I didn't do any of the windows 7 upgrades, then i put in the usb with windows 10 and it worked flawlessly.

    Everthing is working great but i have not installed any of the asus bloatware, and am running stock speeds witch should be fine for what I do.

    Having known these problems would arise in advance I would have not updated to this hardware until later, the only reason I am is because i'm on the preorder list for oculus rift that has a delivery date for april , I would have done this upgrade then.

If this comes back okay and tested and fully working. I will try an install of windows 7 first then up to 10. that is if i can get windows 7 to install.

    but I dont wanna think about that right now lol as i have been proper stressed out about this and just want to get it set up and working again. Ive a new GFX card and new games going to waist here. Thanks for the reply
