Hello everyone,

Just recently, I built my very own pc. When I was trying to install windows 10 via a USB bot drive, the program initially appeared to install successfully, but when it proceeded to restart, i encountered an error, which showed this ( i got it on video, apologies for the grainy quality):

Later, when I tried again, the installation failed again in the following manner:

Can someone tell me what is the problem?

I am installing it on a 120gb SATA ssd, I am not sure if the driver has to show exactly 120gb of storage. Please refer to this video where I formatted the ssd, but it still shows less than 120gb of storage:

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
 
1st - list full specs of your pc;
2nd - disconnect HDD, before installing windows. Or else your system will not be bootable without HDD present;
3rd - delete any existing partitions on SSD before installing windows. Bootloader requires separate partition. If existing partition occupies all space on SSD, no bootloader partition can be created.

Apologies for the late reply.

My specs are as follows:
Asus B450m-k motherboard
Ryzen r5 2600 processor
Galax gtx 1060 6gh GDDR5X graphics card
Western Digital Blue Desktop 2TB HDD
Patriot Burst 120gb SSD

I just tried rebooting my computer again, and it seems i have encountered even more problems.
Over the course of several reboots, I encountered several error codes:

Is this because of the installation problem earlier?
 
When I get error codes, I do a Google search on the code like this "0x........ and Windows 10". Do that and see what it says.
If the Google search doesn't help, disconnect everything except your SSD, delete all partitions from the SSD, then format and do a clean install.

I dismantled my pc today, and brought some parts that I suspect to be the problem (power supply, motherboard, cpu and ssd) to the PC shop to be inspected by the in store technician. Not only did he verify that none of the parts were malfunctioning, he managed to install windows 10 on the ssd. So I brought it home, and tried booting up my computer, to no avail. Not even a post screen. I then went to another pc shop to get the gpu inspected. The guy confirmed that there was nothing wrong with the gpu, and the hdmi cable that connected the gpu to the monitor was working just fine.

I THEN tried using the exact same hdmi cable to connect my laptop and monitor, and the monitor displayed what was on my laptop screen with no issues.

I am at the end of my ropes here. The only thing that I can think of that was causing these problems is either the HDD (is that even possible) , or the power plug itself (is that even possible), because the computer will not even post when in my house at this point, whereas it not only posted perfectly in the PC hardware shop, it even has windows 10 on the ssd.

Tomorrow, I am going to bring my entire pc and monitor to the pc shop to be inspected. I used to heavily condone building a pc myself (cheap and greater customization), but now I am not so sure. I would pay money for someone to just hand me my perfectly working pc at this point.

Yeah. The in store technician confirmed that the ram was the problem.

But here is the catch. The pc ran fine when the two ram slots was populated by different sticks of ram (Geil Evo Potenza 3000 MHZ 2x8 GB sticks) but will not run when the two ram slots were populated with the two ram sticks that we bought (Kingston pc2666 MHZ 2x8 GB sticks). It was the stangest problem that I have even seen or heard. We checked the Kingston sticks for any differences in frequency, but both of them are the same. We then tried the Kingston sticks individually, and they both worked. Even the in-store technician said that this is the first time that he had witnessed this issue. Anyways, we refunded the Kingston sticks and bought the Geil sticks, and the pc runs fine now.

I honestly do not know what is the problem. Even the serial number on the Kingston sticks indicating the frequency of the ram were the same, and they both when when plugged in individually, but would not work when both of them were plugged in.
