    Is it possible that booting to Safe Mode would help?

    Select Custom Install

    Yours won't look like this. You will have partitions on yours. Starting at the left, use your cursor and select the first partition to highlight it, then click the delete key just below the window. Do the same thing for each other partition until your drive looks like the one in the picture. The whole drive should say unallocated. Once you get it to that point, click the New button at the bottom. Accept the messages that come up. When it is finished creating the partitions windows needs, click next.

    The rest is self explanatory, just don't put in a key until we get it installed.

    Bear with me, I checked and I chose the wrong SSD when I started this machine back up. I will shut down briefly, I hope, and install the one with the new firmware.

    You gave instructions for what to do when the USB stick boots. I could not do that last night. Might it be better today? Do we maybe need a different BIOS setting to do this boot?
