Trying to get this new rig working properly and I'm pulling my hair out at this point. Building a DAW/gaming rig. The primary use of this rig is to run Ableton Live 10, Pro Tools, Studio One and some other music related stuff, along with some casual gaming. Most of my work is done within Ableton and that is my biggest concern.
I am having an issue getting Ableton to run. Throws a generic crash dialog with no code. "A Serious Error has Occurred..."
Here is what I have done so far and I'm baffled.
-4 reinstalls of Windows 8.1 (one via DVD, three via USB)
-Way too many reinstalls of Ableton and Microsoft .Net Framework
-Replace MOBO and update BIOS
-Swapped in the System Drive SSD (SATA) from my currently functional AMD rig (booted up fine but threw the same error)
-Try each stick of memory, individually, in different channels.
-Cry a lot
ASUS Prime Deluxe X299
Thermaltake 360mm AIO with fans in push-pull
32GB (4x8GB) Ballistix Sport 2666
Rosewill Xtreme 80plus Bronze 750w (had a brand new one laying around, old but unused)
Nvidia 1060 (also tried an old R7 360)
Samsung 870 Evo 500GB M.2 NVME (system drive)
WD Blue M.2 SSD 1TB (having an issue now with this drive not being seen, even in the bios and disk manager)
WTF am I missing here? This setup should be totally overkill for Ableton.
