Windows 10 fails to install update..

So i just finished building my PC, installed windows on it. Tried to download my GPU driver, it says not compatible with this version of windows. So i do a benchmark test, it doesnt recognize my GPU, so then i go to update windows it wont let me update at all, it downloads but then when installing updates it says Failed to install, and thats for every possible windows update. Then all of a sudden my PC freezes. blue screen pops up with CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT.

TL;DR: i cant update windows.. keeps telling me failed to install, ive reset windows 2 times already and same issue

I have fixed the issue, apparently I had a corrupt windows installed or something, a clean fresh install from a different usb stick has solved the problem

I've had something similar to that and the issue was using fat32 instead of NTFS, if I tried to install from a flash drive using fat32 it would screw up.
