windows 10 installation fails "pagefault_in_non-paged_area" pssnap.sys

Windows 10 failed after about 91% complete in the drivers section. 

The had the error page fault in non-paged area    pssnap.sys error to lookup

I reviewed the page file settings... I found some tips on setting it to no-page file, then

reset it back, to system managed (rebooting each time)  but that didn't do the trick.

Any suggestions?      Seems to be page file related .. is there a log or something I can

look at?
