    Windows freezing at start of install

    as stated I cannot get windows to install,( on a seperate machine) its like a timer goes off and the process just hangs. I have tried USB and DVD but after the language choice screen appears I have about 3 seconds and headphone, keyboard and mouse lights go out and the process stops. the iso size is 3.416gb but came with no version number?

    You can get fresh 1607 version from Microsoft. Search Windows 10 media creator. USB or ISO. Watch search result for true Microsoft web page. There are other ISO's listed within these forums that can also be downloaded.

    There is a page in the Ten forums on your MB.

    Intel DX58SO MB & Win 10 Have you reference it? It also references another post when dealing incompatibilities.
