Short version: I have no OS, and cannot install Windows 10 from USB due to loop of BSOD crashes, and restarts.

I tried everything updated BIOS, restarted CMOS, used diskpart to clean the main SSD even created a partition on the main SSD where I copied the files of the WIN10 installation. Yet every time I try to install win10 I get a BSOD usually they're of different code. Also I tried booting into 2 different Linux distros and they work for 10-15min before crashing totally, however, when I try to install them on the SSD they seem to fail the install as well.

The PC is a new build from 5 months ago it has worked flawlessly until now, I have not used it for a month and but I did unplug the PSU just incase of a power shortage etc.

specs:
MOBO: MSI MEG x570 Ace
RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Vengance DDR4 3200MHz
SSD: samsung 970 EVO PLUS
VG: Msi Geforce 2700 rtx
PSU: 750W corsair

Hardware perhaps - something loose and intermittently loosing connectivity.

Sometimes with a new build connections feel tight but are not. And no one wants to force things.

The next step (for me anyway) would be to power down, unplug, and open the case.

Doublecheck that all cards, cables, RAM, jumpers etc. are fully and firmly connected.

Going back a bit: what BSOD codes are being presented?
