    I have an old PC that I've been using as my Linux box for some time. Now a friend wanted to take it from me. Since he doesn't know Linux, I figured I'd install Windows 10 home (64bit) for him... Now I've tried installing via CD's, ISO to USB Boots, I've even tried my old Windows 8 and 7 CDS no matter what I get a similar problem:

    What Happens:
    Windows will start loading the install then come to an error 0xc0000225 leaving me at the "Recovery screen" (image below). It gives me options to try again or hit F8 to change options which quicly return to the image below... Window 7 was a different error code but same effect...

    Figuring I broke something or it just died randomly as I needed it, I deleted all partitions, tried 2 other hard drives, I tried each ram individually and in pairs and all 4 (4x2GB), I tried 2 different Video cards (HD7970 + HD6850)...

    I am truely at a loss, I can reinstall Ubuntu Linux 18.04 with no problems and even games work perfectly

    PC Is a
    • q9550 CPU
    • P5Q Mobo
    • 8GB RAM PC6400
    • SSD OCZ Vertex2
    • HD 7970 Video Card
    • 750W PSU that is not too old (~2 years)

    Please anyone who can help let me know, and let me know if I need to elaborate on anything...

    Thank you,

    My Bad, I believe it is a dying PSU or mobo PWM.

    I found an old Video card I had forgot about, and I removed every last thing device / peripheral I could including the mouse and she booted and started the Windows 10 install fine...
