  1. Windows boot error


    Ok, so I'm super frustrated and at the end of my rope. I've seen other people have this issue and have tried what seems like everything but nothing works.


    I have a computer that I built, and recently replaced the hard drive in. It's a brand-new, completely clean hard drive; nothing has been installed on it yet. I insert my installation media for Windows 10 into the computer and boot it up.


    However, after getting past the "loading files" screen, it gives me this error:

    ******************************

    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

    1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.

    2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".

    3. Click "Repair your computer."


    If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.


    File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe

    Status: 0xc0000225

    Info: The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.


    ******************************


    What is strange to me is that I AM trying to boot to a Windows installation disc. I've tried everything from changing the boot order in bios to completely unplugging all other storage and drives so theres nothing to boot but the usb and the harddrive. Please help because I'm getting really frustrated and confused.


    Currently boot order is set: 1. Usb: kdi-msftwindows 10 pmap 2. Uefi: kdi-msftwindows10 pmap 3. Sata: st2000dm008-2fr102

    I dont know why windows 10 shows up twice


    Specs.

    Motherboard: asrock 970m pro

    Harddrive: seagate barracuda 2tb

    Installation media: windows 10 usb



    *I copied most of the text from other posts because it was easier than typing the exact same thing out* All details are specific to my system though.

    :)
