Ryzen 5 3600 crashing installing windows 10

New Build

Ryzen 5 3600

MSI X570-A Pro motherboard - BIOS ver. E7C37AMS.H20

2 x kingston 8GB 2133MHz memory

Nvidia GTX 980

500GB m.2

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%.

Re: Ryzen 5 3600 crashing installing windows 10

This tech site gives a very good explanation and troubleshooting tips to resolve that particular error: FIX: Windows Cannot Install Required Files 0x8007025D - Appuals.com 

Method 1: Unplug all other external devices

Method 2: Reduce the size of HDD or SSD disk space and format it

Method 3: Download a new Windows 10 ISO image file

Method 4: Try writing the image onto another USB drive

Method 5: Run a memory diagnostic on your RAM and replace a bad RAM stick

On Method 5 you can run MEMTEST86 to physically check your RAM MEMORY for errors.

Each method above is explained in detail on how to do it.

Note: Don't download the tech site's recommended software. It is a scam but the information is valid.
