Ended up trying to install W10 on my brand new hardware, and was immediately greeted by a bluescreen without even installing Windows. Greeted me with a BSOD 0xc000000e. So I tried to install W7 instead. Also BSOD but with a different number 0x0000007E. My hardware seems to be fine, at least everything is being recognized in my BIOS. I'm now running memtest 86+ and will wait for its results. But I wanted to make sure: Could this be in any way related to my BIOS settings? I didn't make any changes to it, but it's my first MSI board and I'm fairly lost with their UI. I created my USB drives with the Microsoft DVD Tool.
