New build won't install windows

I've just finished building the new machine, want to install a fresh copy of Win10 on the m.2 drive.

However, when it gets to the windows logo, it just sits, wheel spins for a bit, then hangs.

Have removed the GPU, unplugged all the hard drives, still the same.

Created the Win10 image on a USB drive using Rufus.

Any ideas of what I can try?

I would try to recreate your boot USB using the "Windows Media Creation Tool", download it from microsofts website. I've had some trouble with rufus in the past myself.

Sadly it won't run on my surface book for some reason

Theres no other windows machine you can run it on? Id give it a shot next time you're at a place with half way decent internet and a windows machine. Like I said I've had trouble with rufus created disks too but I'm not real sure about a fix for this kind of thing.

Ah...

I7 9700k

F8 bios on my Z390 Auros Pro

F9 bios added 9th gen support... Let's hope this does the trick!

Yep, fixed it.

Relieved but somewhat annoyed by myself!

Have now tried removing the m.2 drive.

Get the windows logo and the spinning wheel still, for a few seconds, then the wheel stops spinning and no more progress made
