Hello, Admin.
I replaced my damaged gigabyte H110 board with HIS H110 last 2 months ago. I don't format HDD at that time because I need to save data first. Now I am trying to clean C drive and install OS. While installation going on error shown that installation media corrupt. I did it on another machine smoothly with same HDD and same installation media with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.
What is problem?
Try running Memtest or some other O/S independent memory test., MediCat has a good one Otherwise it may be a bad optical ROM drive.
