I am running 1703 on a Hyper-V VM with no problem.  Will allow my real system soon.  Enjoy, John.

If his memory is testing fine without error on a memtest+ boot usb, then I would try a different SSD or HDD if he has been using the same SSD. Is he running a ram drive or speed boost?

clubfoot, as near as I can tell deactivator has done no memory testing.  I have suggested mdsched (Widows based) because it is easy to run and does not involve creating bootable memtest86 media.

deactivator, please do some memory testing!  Run one stick at a time and run mdsched.  Assuming you are willing to format you install disk, for your next install, when the disk select menu comes up, press Shift+F10.  This will give you an Administrator command prompt.  Type diskpart (disk partition), then list disk.  From the list of disks, select the one you want to install W10 on and type select disk x, where x is the disk number of the disk you want to install on.  Make absolutely sure you have selected the correct disk!!!!  Diskpart is unforgiving and asks for no confirmation!  Next type clean.  As soon as you hit enter, diskpart will clean your disk!  It will ask you nothing.  When this finishes (short), exit diskpart and install W10,  I recommend you specify GPT for the install disk format.
Please start all this after your memory testing.
Enjoy, John.

Here's a quick update:

1. Memtest came back clear.
2. Problem seems to be related to either connected USB devices, USB ports, or possibly USB headers on the motherboard.

Since disconnecting the USB devices, he was able to use his system for over 24 hours (a new record for him). He was also able to complete SFC and DISM without issue.

Right now I am trying to get him to go through the painstaking process of testing each USB device, one at a time, and then each port, one at a time. If all the devices connected to back ports come back clear, and all the ports on the back come back clear, we will move on to testing the header-connected USB ports.

Because of all the trouble I've had with USB3 headers, I wouldn't be surprised if that may have been the problem all along.

To test each device/port, I suggested that he plug a device in, restart the computer, and then run SFC. Running SFC consistently triggered a freeze/crash at approximately 12%. Would you guys know of a quicker way to perform the testing of these devices/ports? His instinct was to just go about using his computer and wait for the computer to freeze, but given how random the freezes/crashes are, I advised against that.

I have had the same experience as you and would agree that removing this connection would eliminate a probable cause.

USB drives attached????????

Check what Etron USB 3.0 driver is being used.

Last I knew 118 was stable. 119 was problematic for many many Users. Me included.

Hey djactivator, how old is your windows 10 install media?

I had very similar problems with a recent ryzen build and it was because my copy of win 10 was too old. I was able to fix the problem with a new copy of windows. I've read that others have been able to get their systems to work by installing windows updates.
