good guys, I set up my pc recently with hardware
i5 9600kf
asus z90m
16gb ddr4 hyperx fury
gtx 1070
ax 760
ssdsamsung evo 850 250GB

I have more hard disk options but I left them off for now

but i'm having trouble installing windows 10 either by flash drive or dvd media, I select boot options and when it starts booting up the pc crashes, sometimes on the loading screen or after entering the hard disk options after a few moments the pc crashes, only tested individual ram memories but continued with same problem, which would leave me CPU and VGA but I think this is not the case, the pen drive media was created with rufus with options MBR BIOS or UEFI, also tried use windows 7 or 8.1 physical media and same error happened

You need to make sure that the Rufus option chosen matches the formatting of the drive being installed to. If the drive has MBR formatting, select MBR in Rufus. If the drive has GPT formatting, select GPT in Rufus.

I changed the options of rufus to GPT and it worked and safe boot, had not tried before because what I had researched was to be used on older hardware thanks

Next time just use Windows 10 Media Creation tool to avoid problems. It's simple and you have the latest W10 build with it.
