Can I ask why you are dragging and dropping the installer in the first place and not just downloading and saving straight to the drive, this could be what is causing the crashes, from my reply #70;Trying to drag and drop the installer from the usb gave me 2 more crashes attached
Did you do both of the above, worth mentioning is that you should also include the USB port drivers among the storage device drivers being that one of their functions is to be able to transfer data via a USB device.Make sure that you have the latest BIOS available and that your storage drivers are up to date.
Having the crashing experience from the last thread I opted to download to a usb on a stable machine. And after the problem with the tool crashing only if I run on usb I opted to copy the file from the usb to the drive.Can I ask why you are dragging and dropping the installer in the first place and not just downloading and saving straight to the drive, this could be what is causing the crashes, from my reply #70;
I checked all the usb drivers and they seem ok. I also turned off Power Suspend for USB. I only have 2 USB 2.0 ports. And I have a usb-mouse and usb-keyboard. I normally plug them booth in 3.0. How should I then configure that?See where you are coming from but doing it that way introduces another possible cause, not too bad a thing though as it did prompt me to suggest checking the USB drivers and Power Suspend for the USB ports, do make sure that for now you use the black USB 2.0 ports as the blue 3.0 type can be problematic at times.
Just that I am on your side of thought. I have errors using a drive with SATA connection and I have errors using a drive with M.2 connection. We can not test the GPU nor MB. So we have a choice. Am I reading that right or can you provide some clarification?same it looks like the problem is with the SATA ports which in turn is what your storage devices are connected to.
