Hi All, 
i am having issues installing Windows as it gets to expanding files then the system resets... I have Changed Hard drives, Change the dim slot of the ram and remove all but basic components and still no luck :(.

I have updated the bios to 3.10 and the only way to get windows onto the system is to install an Harddrive with windows already installed and it boots for a bit then after keeps wanting to load but it starts resetting again.

Im guessing it may be a bug with the bios as the settings are at default....I would like what you guys might think what it is LOL

System:
Asrock AB350M-PRO4
AMD A8-9600
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX  DDR4 4GB 2400mhz 
Western Digital Blue 1tb
EVGA GEFORCE 210

Thanks

This is the first issue I recall with anyone having a Windows installation problem like this with any AM4 board, so I doubt it's a bug in the UEFI/BIOS. Or a UEFI option causing a restart of the PC.

The real issue is the repeated reset/restart of the PC, regardless of what you are doing with it.

Your single DIMM of memory should be in the A2 slot.

What version of Windows are you trying to install?

If you go into the UEFI/BIOS, can you stay there indefinitely without a reset?

It sounds like the resets happen quickly regardless of installing Windows or trying to boot an existing Windows installation. Does the time it takes for the reset to happen seem consistent and quick?

In the UEFI/BIOS, in the HW Monitoring screen, what are you getting for a CPU temperature? If you're in the UEFI and stay on that screen, what is the CPU temperature?

Are you using the stock AMD CPU cooler, or something else?

You did not mention the PSU you are using, full model name please.

more info please

what version of windows ?
what installation method?

the recommended and in my view only way to install

is windows 10 64 bit
with a fresh version downloaded and created on a usb drive using windows media creation tool (google it)

if your using a dvd and an older version of windows 10 then this is most likely the issue

if your trying windows 7 then theres a whole heap of other issues
