    New PC. No OS installed. Retail Windows 10 usb boot loop

    Boot priority is set to Windows 10 USB first, SSD second
    Tried in 3.0 and 2.0 ports (switched to legacy options)
    Select 64 bit
    Initial install screen shows then computer reboots.
    No video card or optical drive hooked up
    Ethernet plugged in

    Any and all suggestions welcome

    10 pro 64 clean install

    When you install windows Initially and it goes to reboot change the boot order to the hard drive first and afterwards it should finish the installation

    Or just pull out the USB flash drive.

    So no part of the OS has been installed yet. On the very first screen after selecting 64 bit after 3 seconds it reboots. When I change the boot order to the SSD it gives me the windows failed to start screen asking for safe mode or start normally
    When trying the usb 3.0 I have the storage boot option control and other PCI devices set to UEFI. When trying the 2.0 I set them to legacy.
    So far anytime I change the boot order back to the SSD or just remove the usb I get the windows did not start screen

    Assuming you have purchased a Windows 10 retail package with a Microsoft Windows 10 installation USB flash drive? This is what I would do:

    Buy a blank USB flash drive, just plain ole' USB 2.0 flash drive. Format it as FAT32. Download Kyhi's Recovery Tools:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - - Windows 10 Forums

    Mount the ISO file, copy the files and folders to the FAT32 formatted USB flash drive. Leave the computer's firmware set for UEFI booting, plug the USB flash drive you created into a USB 2.0 (black) port and boot in Kyhi's Recovery Tools. Once you have Kyhi's recovery tools running, you can remove that flash and insert the Windows 10 installation flash drive. From file explorer, run setup.exe from the Windows 10 flash drive and see if the install is successful then.

    When you install from a usb stick, use the boot menu to choose the usb stick the 1st time, that`s it. Do not make any boot order changes in the Bios, do not remove the usb stick until you`re at the desktop, just as if you were using a dvd.

    When I boot into the iso mounted usb I see a black screen - press any key to boot from usb. I then see a screen showing a blue windows logo black background and it just hangs there
    I only downloaded the x64 version. Not sure about the z86 or modify winpase

    I think it might be time to start looking at a hardware issue.

    You can try putting the hard drive in another computer. Doing a clean install of Windows 10 to it (do not enter a product key). Move it to the new computer and see if the computer will boot from it. Then enter the product key to activate it on the new computer.

    Re download the ISO and do up another bootable thumb drive, just in case the current one is corrupted. Might even want to try a different thumb drive. What procedure did you use to create your bootable media?
