I just finished a new build. Everything powers on and I can get into BIOS and all. When I try to install Win10 from bootable USB, I keep getting the BSOD with message "page fault in nonpaged area". It continues to boot to the same screen. I tried changing boot order, changing ssd's, removed one ram stick, moved both into different slots, but still the same issue. I am at a loss...

MSI z390 gaming AC
Ballistix two sticks of ram for total 16gb
Intel i5-8600k
Coolermaster cpu fan

I also tore it apart and reseated the cpu and fan. I checked the pins and they were fine. I will also check out the mobo to see if any bent pins. How do you know if a mobo or cpu is DOA?
