System boots but keeps crashing installing Windows 10. Tried different install media and different hard drive.
The error I get is "Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x8007025D. It will crash anywhere from completing 2% to 97%.
Sounds like it may be having issues with your M.2 drive.
try disabling SMT on your UEFI settings
