I got a new ssd and I got my usb stick with windows 10, but when I tried to boot from windows 10 it didnt work. I have tried a lot of things over the internet. I have diabled safe boot and changed it to legacy but it would just stay there.

how do I fix this? I have my usb to be the first to boot, but then it just boots to the black screen with blinking underscore.

I do not have access to another windows computer, I know the usb works because the first time it booted to windows setup but then it wouldnt download so I thought maybe I should redownload the windows 10 on the usb then it started to not work. the usb is from a friend which downloaded it from a windows computer.

You mean it booted, but would not install, right?

You then did what was mentioned before, correct?

That second image sounds like the issue. You need to remake that image and re-burn (looking for a bootable option) to the USB drive.

When the system first booted, were you able to get to the part where you select where to install Windows to (select the drive)?
