are you trying to image from a windows DVD or from a usb drive?
is it a dvd you have burnt or a propper Windows DVD?
have to tried defaulting the bios to default settings?

Had the same problem on an 8100 Elite SFF. Tried every BIOS setting. Tried flashing the BIOS.
Turned out it was a RAM problem. I was using 2x 4GB PC3-10600 unbuffered - which should be supported - but it was the problem. Same spec RAM from a different manufacturer solved the problem.

P.S. Does your PC have >4GB RAM by chance? If you had a problem with the RAM above the first 4GB, then you'd have issues in a 64-bit OS but not a 32-bit OS.

Me it's me but what was the real workaround for this issue?
A friend of mine has the exact hardware and exactly the same issue!!
There is no way you can install any Microsoft Windows XX 64-bits OS. MS Win 7 64-bits installer goes until the end without any issues or hickups but once the 100% is reached and system reboots Windows won't work.
The interesting part is that Ubuntu 64-bits versions 14.04, 15.04 and 16.04 LTS get installed and everythings works fine, including the 16 Gb RAM.
Thanks and looking forward for any feedback.
