I have formatted my PC 2 times now, ran MEMTEST for 10 hours and found nothing, ran ESTOOL to test the drives and it passed every test.
I don't know what could be wrong!
I did have a similar problem on one of my PC. On Other system, the same installation package did not produce any crc error. On a specific system with ASUS motherboard, the crc error was persistent. So I went to ASUS website, downloaded the BIOS and the utility for writing the BIOS and upgraded my system. I never had another crc error with that machine again.
Warning! This is a very dangerous procedure. If the upgrading is incomplete, the BIOS eprom will become useless and you need a special eprom writing-device to rectify the complication. So you do also need an UPS.
Hope this is educational.
