Need help troubleshooting new motherboard and processor

Time to buy new sticks?

I think so, yes

Today I replaced my motherboard and processor with an Asrock b450 pro4 and a Ryzen 5 2600. It posts, I can load into the bios, and everything shows up with the correct specs, but the system seems unable to boot to anything. At first I tried just booting to my boot drive that I've been using in that system for years, but I got errors saying that files in system32 are missing. After that, I tried booting to my installation media, but I got the same error saying that files in system32 were missing or corrupted. I then reinstalled the media creation tool on the flash drive that I've been trying to boot to, and I got what seems to be a graphical error, pic related. Something that might be of note, The errors seem to be inconsistent, sometimes it will be for some file in sys32, another time it'll tell me something about the kernel being corrupted, and another time it'll tell me that a digital certificate couldn't verified.

 

 

 my rig before:

 

i5 6500

MSi z170a sli plus (might not be the plus, cause I bought it a long time ago, but I know it's in that family of motherboard)

GTX 1070

16GB of DDR4 PNY anarchy ram

 

My rig now is the same, with the exception of the new processor and motherboard

That hasn't been updated in a decade. They just released a new beta but it's not ready for prime time yet.

 

This is the one you should be using:

I find it still to be valid and accurate, but YMMV.

I ran memtest and got 24 errors. would I be correct in guessing that it's just the ram sticks at fault? or should I do more research to see if the slots themselves not working properly?

Turn off XMP, if you have it enabled.

But otherwise, flaky RAM, swap it out and try again

I don't have it enabled, but I do have some new developments. I removed one of the sticks and I'm now able to get into windows and use the system, but I then got a BSOD involving the memory, and memtest is still giving me errors. Time to buy new sticks?
