Default Win 10 on z87 Mobo

I have bought G1 sniper z87
I have ssd sata with previously windows installed ..
At first I received an error of cant boot use recovery disc ..

Then I decided to do a fresh install but it doesnt go to further after (press any button to boot from usb/disc...)

I used bootable usb and disc both only once i goes till the setup then restarted suddenly and all same again ..

Then i tried win 8.1 dvd which works like charm..

I dont know what is the actual problem.. Either it can't support or my usb and dvd both not good (usb has win 10 downloaded from media creation tool from Microsoft)

Tried refreshing and default bios ..

My only option left i to install 8.1 and update from their to 10..

Are you sure the media you used (the download or ISO) for Win10 to create the USB/disc isn't corrupt? I'd try to re-download the ISO from MS's site and re-create the bootable USB or DVD. Also, make sure you verify the checksum to make sure it's not corrupted (if they have the checksum available on their download page, that is).

Also, you may need the SATA drivers during install - I needed them for my Gigabyte Z87 board when I installed Win10. Should be available on their site in the driver downloads.
