I've got an Samsung 840 EVO (but I've used WD Red / Blue / Gold and a couple of Seagate Hdd's too) connected one of the 4 sataII ports all by itself. I've got the mass storage controller in the bios set to AHCI. I've also got a PNY video card in the x8 slot. That's it.
Windows 2016 setup gets past the first re-boot. Then it BSOD's. Doesn't complete the setup. Now, Win 2012 r2 set's up just fine. Any ideas?
