I recently built my own computer and am now attempting to install Windows 10 on it. However, when I boot from the USB device, the installation process freezes after a few seconds. I have tried both creating an installation USB with the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and creating an ISO with the tool and then using Rufus to transfer it to a USB, but both methods result in the same issue.

The screen either freezes while the loading dots are turning, the installation start screen appears and then freezes, or the language selection screen appears and then freezes. I have tried waiting for an extended period of time and have tried using two different USB devices, but the problem persists.

I have also tried installing Ubuntu and Windows 7 on the computer, but they both fail as well. However, the Windows 10 installation does work on another computer. I do not have a disc drive, so using a USB is my only option.

I have tried several troubleshooting methods such as power cycling, resetting the motherboard to factory settings, using different USB slots, disconnecting various components such as the RAM, mouse, and keyboard, and more.

Does anyone know what could be causing this issue and how I can fix it?
