    Installation Problem - Blank Screen on New PC Build

    Ugh. I'm trying to install Windows 10 on a brand new PC I just built; part list below.
    I boot from the W10 flash drive after entering BIOS setup, and I'm taken to a screen that says "Loading Files" with a load bar. Once the loading bar fills, the screen goes blank, and stays blank. I can't figure it out. I know a lot of people have had trouble installing W10 and getting a blank screen, but I haven't come across any advice for a brand new build.
    Part Component
    CPU Intel - Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
    CPU Cooler Rosewill - RCX-Z775-LP 33.5 CFM Sleeve Bearing
    Motherboard MSI - B250M PRO-VDH Micro ATX LGA1151

    Hi LADrone415. Welcome to the TenForums at @LADrone415.

    Here is our tutorial on doing a clean install. Not sure how you created your media but may I suggest you use the media creation tool from MS

    Mind the tips in the tutorial, you need to disable secure boot and fast boot in BIOS.

    Clean Install Windows 10

    You only listed one storage drive however if you have a "Data" drive please disconnect for installation.

    Not sure how you initialized windows drive but assuming your machine boots UEFI it should be GPT.

    Assuming your SSD has no required data on it and you are booting UEFI

    When the first screen comes up press shift + F10. In the command window that opens run the following commands. This will erase (clean) the entire hard drive

    List disk
    select disk 0 (assuming disk zero is where you want windows)
    Convert gpt (only if you are booting UEFI)
