Can't install Windows 7/8/10 on new PC Build - Help

Hi, I just build this new PC;

Intel Core i7–7700 K 4,2 GHz QuadCore 8 MB Cache Processor
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6 Intel Z170 So.1151 Dual Channel DDR4 ATX
Graphics Card: 6GB MSI GeForce GTX 1060
DRAM: 16GB G.Skill RipJaws V black DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16
CPU: 860 Watt Corsair AXi Series AX860i Modular 80+ Platinum
SSD: 480GB Corsair Neutron XTi 2.5" (6.4cm) SATA 6Gb/s MLC Toggle (CSSD-N480GBXTI)
Cooler(Liquid): NZXT Kraken X52 240mm

now that you know all my components, let's get onto the problem:

When I start up the PC everything works fine, so far.
I get into the BIOS menu and can set up everything, from the spinning speed of the fans inside, to the performance tweaks and everything.

My only problem is, when I connect my HDD it reads it and asks, if I want to start Windows 7 or XP. I chose 7, it gets to the loading screen and all the sudden, there is a blue screen, shutting down my computer... So I figured, I should get Windows on my SSD and try to run it there.
My PC doesn't even recognise Windows on my SSD, so i get the message:

"Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key."

I went and got an installation CD and also got an USB DVD Drive and got both plugged in. I configured everything in the BIOS so the USB port I use, is the first booting option.
It detects it, starts it up properly, I hear the CD spinning and scanning and all the sudden, same message pops up.

"Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key."

tried the same with Windows 8 and 10... none will work, on neither the SSD, HDD and the USB DVD Drive..

I would appreciate, if someone could give me advice..

  1. The Z170 board doesn't have a proper BIOS loaded to run a KABY LAKE CPU , you need a Skylake to update the BIOS or snd it back and get a Z270 board.
  2. Yes you need a Z270 board , because you can't update the Z170 without a Skylake CPU.
  3. except he can get to the BIOS which means it has been updated to run Kaby Lake. If it hadn't been all he'd ever see is a black screen.

    P7.10 < see if your BIOS shows this as the version , which supports the 7700k.

    A few boards have made it to just the BIOS , 2 LAST WEEK had made it in on ASUS boards but didn't have a proper BIOS loaded.

    Just want him to make sure he has a BIOS that can run the 7700k.
  5. Yeah, to all of you: It is updated. it read P 7.20.
