If there is no error then you know it is not your cpu and likely windows media or some odd drivers that is preventing you from installing windows.
I'll give another shot. But don't see why, 2 motherboards, multiple gpus, rams, PSUs, NVMe, ssds, hdds. Even different installation usb sticks, still same. All of these are still properly functional in all other systems right now.

Just for curiosity, have you ever tried to load up a Linux Live o/s from a disk?

Is this the original box that they are talking about? Who keeps such a box?
I always do but I don't think they need the original box; instead, they just need to make sure it was a retail-box CPU you purchased and not an OEM one, as previously stated. As long as you did indeed buy a boxed processor you should be fine. You can contact them again for clarification but I'm pretty sure that's all they are saying.
