Got my system to POST, but after selecting 64 bit windows 10 install from a brand new Windows 10 flash drive, it freezes while the dots are spinning around my motherboard logo. I was able to start in safe mode (through f8 on installation select), which let me get past the freezing, install almost all of the windows components, and type in my security key from the package. Then, on restarting it immediately froze again with the spinning dots, and continued to freeze on the spinning dots immediately after a reboot because Windows boot manager was successfully installed.

I'm really confused. Windows obviously was able to install okay in safe mode, but as soon as it needs to boot up it freezes after exactly 1 past BIOS splash. Let me know what you guys think.

Solved. Motherboard BIOS was not updated out of the box to support 9th gen Intel CPU. Needed to use Asus easy flash to updated bios
