There is no driver package from either company, as for removing the device, I honestly have no Idea what it could be, since I have no RGB installed.

Only thing coming to mind after reading through their webpages could be the qi charger.
But removing that would take a considerable amount of time, as I have to disassemble my whole pc for that.

Also there was another BSOD with IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL.

It's getting late here, I will get back tomorrow, thanks for the help so far.

See if there is driver available to download for that "qi charger" on their site, download it and update current driver.

OK, until tomorrow!

EDIT:
Some drivers also here: (chipset may update this)
https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/MEG-X570-UNIFY#down-driver&Win10 64

To be absolutely sure this is problem before disassembling PC generate multiple BSOD's with driver verifier,
they should all point to same driver, otherwise it's likely some hardware, and then testing starts with clean installation of Windows.

Continuing from yesterday I tried using verifier again, after updating the drivers, but nothing changed.
Still crashes, before I even ge to Windows and there is no new dmp file generated, even though it crashed atleast 4 times.

The blue screen with sad smiley and driver verifier detected violation kind.
Happens 2 times and on the third boot it will go into recovery.

It would be mistake to draw conclusion based on one dump that caught some driver, but if dump was not created there are several reasons for this:

1. make sure you have enough disk space and virtual memory (page file)
2. hard drive may be failing which is needed to write dump files

I already explained you how to to configure dump creation, memory etc.

To verify dump creation failed (and possibly why), share fresh event logs.

Just tried again, after checking if everything is configured as in your post.
Still no new dmp files, here are the fresh logs though.

Please also make following 2 logs:

1. Right click on Windows button and click on "Windows PowerShell (Admin)"
2. copy/paste all of the bellow code at once and right click into console then hit enter

Code:
Get-WinEvent -LogName Setup | select Id, TimeCreated, LevelDisplayName, Message | fl > C:\setup.log
3. copy/paste all of the bellow code at once and right click into console then hit enter

Code:
Get-EventLog -LogName Application -EntryType Error, Warning |
select EventID, TimeGenerated, Source, Message | sort TimeGenerated -Descending | fl > C:\application.log
4. This will create files called "setup.log" and "application.log" in your C drive
5. Zip up those 2 files and attach to your new reply

I've seen almost the same longs several times, and it's not going to be easy to guess what is the problem, the logs don't reveal why dump creation failed, we can only guess what could be.

If you want to swiftly jump ahead in time with troubleshooting just reformat drive and install new system.

You can try to fix things for example with:
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/using-the-sfc-and-dism-to-repair-windows-10.1235557

Otherwise, make a backup of your data and:
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/doing-a-completely-clean-reinstall-of-windows-10.1235377

With fresh system installed it will be much easier to troubleshoot hardware problems.

You can also try out hardware tests:
1. CPU https://www.mersenne.org/download/
2. memory https://www.howtogeek.com/260813/how-to-test-your-computers-ram-for-problems/
3. GPU https://geeks3d.com/furmark/

But to test disk, it must be wiped out first and have a clean system, and second step is to do the same with another disk and observe difference.

So just to confirm.
Wipe all drives, install fresh W10 and before drivers or anything report back in to test hardware ?

I would run CHKDSK, SFC and DISM in that order, as first step now, just to se if there are problems with Windows installation.
First link in my previous post.

If that produces or resolves some errors, either disk was not properly formatted or there is drive problem.

In any case, once new system is installed, you don't want to install anything, not even drivers, nothing.
Full Windows updates are first thing to do, and doing tests with MS drivers, and then with manufacturers drivers again.

and start reproducing problems that previously led to failure, adding drivers one by one starting with chipset and rebooting often.

Running hardware tests, with tools from my previous post, require drivers are installed (either MS drivers, or original ones)

You may want to install windows with:
1. slow disk format prior installation
2. UEFI instead of BIOS mode
3. GPT instead of MBR
4. legacy functions off in BIOS
5. BIOS Windows 10 features (WHQL support, safe boot etc...)

Slow disk format is needed to test disk, let me know if you need help with this, detailed information here:

bootable USB:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-essentials/install/create-a-bootable-usb-flash-drive

Manual partitioning:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...configure-uefigpt-based-hard-drive-partitions

Windows should be fresh one (not some old version or corrupt image) manually extracted to USB, and make sure you don't miss FAT32 formatted USB to be able to boot into UEFI mode.
