Hello everyone. I am trying to creat a clean install of Windows 10 onto my new computer. I have a SanDisk 16 GB flash drive with the Windows Media Creation Kit loaded onto it. I have said drive set as first in my MSI Z270 M3 MB but every time I start my PC I get a prompt saying "Reboot and Select proper Boot device" can someone please help me?

You need to use media creation kit under your windows 10 to create a bootable image onto your sandisk flash drive. Launch windows 10 media creation kit program under windows, follow steps and select target USB flash drive, once finished you can proceed rebooting your PC from the created windows 10 bootable installation image.

If the Media Creation kit actually formatted your USB flash-drive and labeled it for you with all the appropriate files, then it should be bootable.

Be sure to press F11 at system power on to invoke the boot options. Now select the USB drive and proceed.
