    Windows 10

    Can't install OS! Reboot when launching installation!


    I have been trying for hours to install windows 10 home on my newly built PC but i can't because there is a problem. I bought the usb version since i don't have an optical drive bay.

    The problem: I can start the setup, but when i launch the installation my pc suddenly restarts and boots the usb again, so i get back at the 32/64 bit selection screen. This happens when i click "next" after choosing my drive (see included video). The drive i'm using is a Samsung 850 EVO SSD.

    I have tried numerous things to fix it including: removing the ram (2x8GB) and putting it back, trying with one ram stick, removing the graphics card and use the integrated graphics card, use different usb ports, use different sata ports, removing the hdd (i can't even start the setup with the hdd plugged in).

    I also downloaded Windows 10 from the official website and put it on an other usb stick, the same problem occurs.

    I even tried with Ubuntu and the same problem happens!! When i launch the installation my pc reboots and the setup restarts!

    I have made a video showing what happens (win 10): OS installation problem - YouTube

    I also made a video that shows my BIOS: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3 BIOS - YouTube

    Everything looks fine... but it doesn't work!!

    Please help!!

    This is quite a common problem.

    First time as pc reboots - after copying files, simply remove usb stick or dvd.
