    When it goes into "Setup is Starting Windows" (to START installation) i get BSOD, every time, I tried 5 different ISO's, I tried slipstreaming it, etc. nothings working! Im lost and I have resorted to the great forum for help.

    Hardware:
    250GB HDD from WD from like 2012
    AMD X2 6500 (or something like that)
    Biostar K8M800 Motherboard
    2GB DDR2

    Ive reset CMOS, BIOS, formatted my flash drive over and over (im using rufus for mounting), ive tried ventoy, ive tried everything under the sun, im tempted to use my good flash drive and just backup the data and try using that to install it.

    overall nothings working, and I dont know what to do. Please help

    great! it's always the least little thing, :)

    I moved to Oregon and it took awhile before I had someplace to set up a computer, :)
