Hi all,

I have recently built this PC.

I am attempting to install Windows via USB onto the NVMe SSD (which I had previously used in an old build, but it has been wiped) but my PC is now in a reboot loop.
I have updated the BIOS but am still experiencing this issue, any ideas?

Unsure if it is worth noting but the PC initially worked and had Windows installed, but when going to check the activation status of Windows, this reboot loop begun.

Thanks :)

Did you check to see if its trying to boot to the NVME and not the USB and its just not finding the USB? Maybe make a new imaged USB stick and try the install again. ALSO, do it without any overclocks.

I was able to install Windows on the SSD using another PC, and when trying to boot this build with that version of Windows it "didn't load correctly" so I imagine it's an issue with the PC's ability to cope with the operating system.
Narrowed it down to a CPU or MoBo issue and dropped it at a repair joint to have a more thorough look - appreciate the insight though mate :)
