Wrong. Modern boards have pw applied ALL of the time; even when OFF. This is how a usb is able to charge a phone, tablet, whatever when the system is OFF.As far as I known, when I shut the PC down for 1 hour, the electricity power will be cut off totally from the motherboard
That does not mean much. A new part can be DOA or faulty.HDD Seagate is new
That makes no sense. Why would you keep trying to install when you know the drive has problems???Yesterday I did an experiment: connecting that HDD to another healthy windows 10 PC and pressed the power button, the BIOS couldn’t find any bootable device, so the HDD is the culprit here.
I reinstalled windows 10 home 64 bit from a DVD on that HDD to make sure it’s a clean installation.
