So i recently built a new pc.

but i'm having problems doing a clean install of windows 10.

I insert a usb installation tool, that i created with microsoft's "media creationtool".

but kept getting the error 0xc0000098


after many trials and errors.

i can get to the installation screen with one of my (good) ram (i have 2 sticks of 8gb).

note: when placing the (bad) ram in, i get error message 0xc0000017.

both rams together gives me the 0xc0000098 (keep in mind there is no OS on this device)


but here's the thing about the bad ram. from all the test i done, everything seems fine.

i did a memtest (regular voltage and +0.1v) NO ERRORS whatsoever. (8 passes)

I hear no error beeps only startup beep and have no "no-post" problems.

Also see the ram in my bios and linux sees the ram too.


my question is can a CPU cause component/installation problems? or could the problem be something else?

I reallly want to use my 2 rams, i don't believe its broken after all the tests.

my built:
