If you can run Linux from USB then that suggests to me that the problem is probably not the CPU. As you have tried replacing the RAM it's probably not that - but you should test it with Memtest 86+ or similar which can be run from USB/optical/floppy disk to confirm.
I would test the SSD & HDD you used (along with the SATA cable?) on a different system - preferably using manufacturer's diagnostic software.
If all these check out I would suspect a motherboard problem - possibly the SATA controller. If you have a SATA controller card available you could try disabling on-board SATA & using the card to see if that cures the problem.

Unbeknownst to most folks, there are 4 billion different "blue screens" and the exact stop code is critical to locating the source of the problem though we may be too late for that approach....
If you have a memory problem happening, Windoze will write bad files during the installation process and will subsequently refuse to boot.
Memtest86 is the best memory test I have found and you can download a free ISO image that you can then burn onto a blank CD. Boot it and let it run for a few hours:
If it reports any errors, reset the BIOS to its "optimized defaults" and run it again. If it still shows errors, take out all but one of the memory modules and try it again. Once you have seen it be OK, put back one at a time until it fails.
