First pc build, freezing before OS installs.


I saw RAM was there, temp was reading, all the fans were running. I have a USB for Windows and another for Memest. I try to install Windows 10 and it freezes before making it to the purple screen of country selection and whatnot. I run Memtest and it comes back with over 5000 errors. I switch the RAM to the other slot, try Memtest again, but it freezes. I try again, it fails to complete Memtest before freezing. Persist in trying to install Windows 10 and i get this error code 0xC0000221. Something about memory being damaged or missing? The motherboard was having troubles when intially installing it, maybe that is damaged? It opens BIOS just fine. Do i need different RAM stick? Different Motherboard?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
