    Clean install on new build from usb. Blue screen after Win 10 logo.

    Hey guys, so I have kicked around and have had little luck finding this issue, but for two mentions, one here and on reddit, where a dvd in the optical drive was causing the issue. This build has no optical drive.

    I've played w/ several boot settings (such as making sure storage drive in CSM was set on UEFI only) and tried two diff usb sticks. No matter what, when I boot from the usb made w/ win creation tool (also tried iso from a legit cd copy and rufus), the win 10 logo will flash as it boots up, then a cmd screen will flash, and the screen will go solid blue with a working cursor. No errors....just blank blue screen and mouse cursor.

    I'm about to start disconnecting gfx card and the storage drives. Any suggestions aside from that?

    Incredibly frustrating as this build has been a nightmare...1st doa mobo, then discovered the cpu fan was this. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    I updated the specs w/ more complete information in my profile. I'm not entirely sure how to run speccy since its a new build that only has BIOS/UEFI accessible and am attempting a first/clean install on a blank ssd.

    My PSU is listed, case seems irrelevant. In any case, I appreciate you trying, but nevermind. I went ahead and unplugged the ssd & hdd. Win 10 has now initialized. Now to try just the destination ssd for the install and go from there.

    Yeah; so for whatever reason the HDD that I had intended on using as a slave/2nd storage was causing the install to not initialize. It was pulled from another system and was the OS drive, but even disabling the hdd didn't work, I had to completely disconnect it, then once win10 was installed, turn off, reconnect and do disk management.

    Beats me. Everything is working fine now.
