    I was finally able to track down a DVD drive and a blank disc to burn but it still froze around the same time
    Just to be sure, there are you definitely referring to Kyhi's iso for the live boot disk? With that your PC does not start Win 10 installation, instead it boots from (in your case a DVD) independently of the internal system drive, and loads a special version of Windows with utilities.

    Please confirm that the sequence you saw was different from that when installing Windows. Kyhi's disk takes quite some time to load from DVD.


    You initial report was
    the setup loads up, everything freezes within 2mins of initializing.
    So the implication, assuming your PC failed to load from Kyhi's disk, is that your PC's hardware is flawed in some way such that any significant processing fails. As such, you may need specialised help with your new custom built hardware.

    Try this:

    Boot the system and press the hotkey to go into the BIOS setup. Most of the modern, graphical BIOSes (UEFI firmware to be more accurate) have some ability to look at things like system temperatures within the setup. Take a look and see if the CPU temperature is getting too high and leading to a thermal shutdown.

    For it to be hanging that early on sounds like it may be some hardware issue and I wonder if possibly the CPU is overheating due to bad contact with the heatsink.

    It's a purely wild guess, but based on a little bit of experience .

    Even if you don't have such monitoring, stay in the firmware setup for a minutes to see if it hangs up there as well.
    The BIOS never freezes and I’ve left it in BIOS for over an hour at times while working on this, the temp never gets above 35c

    It was not the Kyhi’s disk yet, I wanted to try just the regular version 1st, since I had received several suggestions to try from a disk. I’ll attempt that one after work today.

    Thanks, that's the first one to use, so you can establish some confidence in your system's hardware- provided it can run something.

    Ram test, Disk test (HD Tune, Health and Error scan tabs), any portable apps can then be run too.

    There are the shortcuts on the desktop, more via the Start Menu.

    Most tools will not be relevant though.

    So Kyhi’s loaded and I was able to open the HDtune and start the error scan, I watched it run for a couple mins and then decided to look at the health tab while I was waiting, at this point it froze again

    Unbelievable fail on my part, all it needed was a BIOS update and everything works fine.

    Thank you all for the help!
