Windows 10 freezes on first install, now boot loops.

So I've been working on my first pc for quite some time. Started with a defective motherboard that caused a boot loop, but was able to get a new one. Now I ran into another issue where I would insert the Windows 10 disc, but it kept freezing after the spinning dots would either disappear after the first attempt at loading, or would freeze mid-spin. After several attempts at a solution, I couldn't figure it out, and now my pc turns off and on repeatedly after having tried out several BIOS options.

A list of my specs are down in the link below. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/XnHqcY

Edit: I decided to test turning it on again, and was able to get it working again. However, I am still witnessing the same issues of the Windows 10 spinning dots freezing while booting it up. I don't have a clue as to what it could be, but any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
