Windows really needs to be installed on the system it will be running on or one of the same model. Otherwise you could run into stability issues.

@ICIT2LOL Yes, it can be used 3 times so there is one more left.

@Ranger4 CPU is seated well (i tried reseating it twice with new thermal paste), checked it and the temperature is max 40C. I don't have another MB with Skylake seat to try it on and i don't have the money to buy another one just to test, therefore i did all the tests on all components for that long. I don't see how can faulty HW endure those tests for that long and remain cool and without errors..

@townsbg I am aware of that, as i said, in inability to install it on my machine, i had to try on another just to see if it works.

OH those magic words

I don't have another MB with Skylake

Been plowing thru event log
keeps reporting processor 2 event id's 18/19,
sometimes doesn't even report it, then states a problem with processor 3
in my ignorance coz im not a BSOD expert, would that imply a voltage problem??

When you say it's seated with new thermal paste, do you mean there is paste between the CPU & the motherboard socket. There should not be any paste in that area at all, the paste should only be between the CPU & the heat sink.

Ok so it is a retail copy I did not know that because I did ask what media you were using back in post #7 but I think you may ave misunderstood what info I was after.

So in that case the activation code is tied to the other board because you installed the system onto the SSD using that motherboard and I am assuming because you only transferred to SSD to the new machine the code is not actually activated on that motherboard or were you asked to activate it on the new machine??

@torchwood Hi Roy, thank you for your time to help and sorry, i googled and found that different generations of 1151 have different names, didn't know that.. idk about voltage, 1st screen in bios shows all voltages, so i googled them to see if they are ok, and they are as in specifications. Maybe they change during installation, i'll see how and check that. Sorry if something i say sounds noob to you i'm no expert in this stuff. Just looking for a little help, that's all.
@Ranger4 No, i'm not THAT noob to put thermal paste on pins on cpu seat, just between cpu and sink (it's new, coolermaster, got it as a gift when my 5th part was replaced. Guess they were ashamed a bit.. :P It's applied by the textbook, on the middle, right amount and it doesn't go over the top edge.)
@ICIT2LOL I may have missunderstood you, sry. I think activation is not a problem here, it can work for several days without activation as long as it's installed and works, right? And no, it didn't ask me for activation again, just on laptop 1st time. On PC when it goes to safe mode, in system options it says "Windows is activated".

Just tried with another PSU, that voltage thing bothered me. No change. Right now i don't have parts to check cpu on another board, hope that cpu is not the problem but i'll look for a replacement to see if there's any difference.
Other things i've tried are downgrading bios to C6, yet another hard drive, another usb with original iso from microsoft and msi smart tools, unplugging everything from power and cmos battery for about half an hour, checking again if some pins below cpu are bent, cleaning cpu and applying new paste all over and installing win 7 from dvd-rom. I'll try to replace cpu again, maybe it's fighting with other components somehow. :/

Ok mate as long as it is working - having said that do not be surprised if they message you still because in the past they have messaged me up to a month after installing their softwares - admittedly mainly Office issues though.

Now when checking the CPU out mate if the pins are bent in that socket then usually the CPU will not function because of the very close tolerances of the distance between each one in the rows. If there are some bent though and this is what I have one in the past with AMD CPUs which have the pins on the CPU itself is to straighten them VERY gently with a plastic credit card back to alignment. The card edge is usually good enough to attain the straight line that is needed.
The thermal compound well you will find there are many preferences on how toapply this and the thig to remember is not to apply too much.
My method of doing this is to clean the two surfaces thoroughly with whatever you find is best I use Arctic Silver cleaners (and Arctic Silver 5 compound) to do this process. The compound I spread with a gloved (vinyl glove) finger to all the surface area of those two surfaces and then a rice grain sized spot of compound on the CPU this I find allows the compound spot to bleed out across the entire surfaces of the CPU and heat spreader on the cooling device.
These are the products I use Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean & Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 they are a little more expensive than most but you get what you pay for

But the choice is yours and I am sure the others may suggest other methods the choice is yours.

Hi, so after many more tests i decided to let professionals do the work and took my pc to the repair shop. It's there for a few days now and no news so far. Can't wait to hear what was the problem. Once i get it fixed, i'll post here so it may help someone with the same or similar problem.
