    BSOD Kernel security check failure on EMPTY hard drive

    i just completed a new computer build with a i3-6100 and a gtx760 with an msi h110m mobo and 8gb of gbmicro ddr4 single stick.

    Now i need to install windows 10 on a EMPTY hard drive without any os(the hard drive is not brand new but its still very usable), and at like 25% the install crashes every time with a kernel security failure what the heck am i supposed to do ?

    i am using a usb drive to boot the windows 10 install

    All solution seems to point to booting to the os with safe boot or something but i dont have an os !

    Please help me! Its been two days that im actively trying to find a solution.

    Hi frisepoile,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    As this is a hardware issue, you have to use a different system to test certain parts. For certain parts, like the PSU and motherboard, there are no software tests.
    For other parts, RAM, GPU and partly the HDD, you need to use a different system to perform software tests on because an OS is required.
    Please let me know if you're unable to use a different system (necause no one will borrow theirs or any other reason).

    I suggest to start with the below tests, because they (mostly) do not require an OS as they are DOS tests. For HDTunes you need a different system to test.

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Note   Note
    Please run HDTune first, in the order posted!

    Run HDTune to
    • check the health,
    • scan for errors, no quick scan but full scan
    • run a benchmark.

    It may take some time, but please take the time you need to perform it properly.
    When above is done please make screenshots of the following
    • the health,
    • the error scan,
    • the benchmark incl. following
      • transfer rate,
      • access time,
      • burst rate,
      • cpu usage.

    Run SeaTools DOS to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Run the long test.
    Note   Note
    Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    Run chkdsk

    Ok. now i did the mem test and i tested my single 8 gb ddr4 stick and had errors on both slots but they are different i guess ? so does this mean my ram is bad or both dimm slots ? edit: also i did a second test on the second dimm slot(2nd image) and the error is now about the same as the first

    Run memtest86+ on a different system with the single Ram stick and see what the result is. If there are errors then the Ram is bad, else the mobo
