Specs:

CPU : Intel 7600k

Cooler : Cooler Master hyper 212 LED Turbo

GPU : EVGA 6Gb 1060 SuperClocked

MoBo : Gigabyte z270m d3h

RAM : Ballistics sport DDR4 8gb, 2400

PSU : 500W, ROCK, Silver 80+

HDD : Seagate st1000dm003

 

Recently I upgraded My MoBo, CPU, Ram and Cooler. Then I wiped the drive and attempted to install windows. It froze up and returned a Clock_Watchdog_TimeOut

 

I have:

-Checked hdd and Ram with console checks : they returned no errors

-Attempted to try install without a GPU : The errors changed to machine_check_exception,

-I tries installing ubunto 16 : It worked fine, no crashes and I was able to play games like Rust and XCOM 2 at about 60fps, with no problems,

-I have tried all configurations of a usb to check if that was the problem and it keeps returning the same errors

Thanks in advance for any help you can give

So the BSOD happened when you attempted to install Windows from a USB? The bugchecks you are getting generally indicate CPU problems, but since we don't have any dump files at all there's no way to know what's causing your BSODs.

The only problem with this is that Linux ran flawlessly

How did you install Linux? Was it in legacy mode or UEFI?  What distro is it?

 

How did you create the Windows install disk?  Is it DVD or USB? did you verify the integrity of the ISO?

I am fairly sure it was UEFI although I don't remember. It was Ubuntu (ver 16.04)

I created a USB with the windows 10 media creation tool

I am just guessing here, but if Ubuntu installs and works fine its not a hardware issue.

 

Do you have a DVD burner on that PC? Do you have a blank DVD? Do you have access to another PC with Windows on it or Linux? How old is the ISO you are using?

 

Heres what I would try.

 

1 Download the Windows ISO ( I assume its Win 10 )

2 Burn it to DVD using Windows or Linux

3 Boot the PC using Linux live and format the Hard drive to NTFS

4 Boot the PC from the DVD you created and try installing.

I totally agree with Nick, have you tried installing Windows with a CD/DVD? The bugcheck codes all point to hardware problems, particularly to the CPU. I'm not sure why Linux runs fine, but Windows is much more sensitive to hardware problems and will blue screen a system to protect your data and the operating system.

 

If that doesn't work, I'd try this hardware stripdown troubleshooting procedure and see whether if you can isolate the problem (recommended by my fellow analyst, usasma).

 

Good luck!
