Tried 2 times to install 64 bit windows 10 from usb, both times stuck on “loading files”
Legacy did nothing in 2hrs so tried uefi, that moved the bar 3 quarters of the way then again just stopped is this normal or just me being impatient?

its not normal.

Try using another USB drive? Try using another usb slot?
Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors. Memtest is created as a bootable USB so that you don’t need windows to run it

Do you have latest BIOS on motherboard?
