    Hmm...considering it is the exact same probleem I will try it anyway. Is it possible to just copy the contents of the USB or do I need to use the iso again? Probably the iso, which is on the hard drive that I can't access right now....

    I think you should be able to copy the ISO. If that doesn't work then create a fresh one on the USB 2 stick. I hope this solves the problem for you.

    Do you have a second computer available to recreate the USB flash drive on? Also, you said the 750GB hard drive is blank? Try install the Windows 10 that you have on it, instead of the SSD, at least it will give you something to work with.

    Are you kidding me? This solved it...I used the same USB 3 stick on the last fresh install and had no problems last time, except when I put it in the USB 3 port. That's when I found out USB 3 is not supported, but it did work in the USB 2 port....My mind is blown, but anyway, it is installing right now...Thanks for the replies all

    Anyway, did learn some new stuff regarding command prompt, so not a total waste of time.
