    First head to the tutorial on Clean Install. Brink outlines how to make a bootable USB using Rufus.

    Amazing amount of data in tutorials.

    When you are back up you should create recovery drive and use Macrium reflect for Images. Free, proven software used by a number of members.

    Hope tutorial keeps you out of the weather.

    So, i wound up taking the route of Rufus yesterday, and the installation went without an issue. However, The PC, on a clean install, keeps giving me the BSOD. [Error: Stop Code: Critical Process Died] I can't seem to pinpoint the issue. I tried running CMD as Admin and used the command "sfc /scannow" to find corrupt windows file. The verification completed and it's final results read "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.LOG windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note the logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios". I've done multiple hardware tests, re-added drivers, and even "repaired windows".

    I've tried looking for the errors through google and tried to resolve the issue but I can't seem to. I'm considering another installation of windows. Before I do, I was just hoping to pick anyone's mind to see if they might have solved this or know anyone who has.

    Hi, Let's do a basic check. Given you don't know the cause of your problem and a fresh installation of Win 10 did not succeed, I would try verifying your disk. I believe in your video you said you'd swapped the RAM and graphics card, so let's discount the RAM for now, assuming your hardware is all consistent.

    Download and create Kyhi's boot disk (DVD/flash drive etc) from the top of the Software and Apps section.

    Boot your PC from that. This gives you a Windows-like environment independent of your disk.

    Download and use Crystal Diskinfo (portable version available, free) and check your drive's smart params. (Gives a quick green/orange/red indication too).

    If you want to try a further check: try Macrorit Diskscanner (free). This will do a surface scan.

    If all is ok, I suggest you format your disk and reinstall Win 10. (Of course you can retain any data partitions, but make sure all Windows related partitions are removed - that includes the 16Mb one Disk Management can't see.

    Noted a hint here - something to check in your BIOS if you read towards the end:
