Question Cannot boot windows

Hi, I've been trying to boot Windows 10 from a USB and it doesn't work, even after selecting the USB as first on my boot order and even overriding it as the boot device.

As my motherboard is from Gigabyte (I'll list components below), after opening the boot menu thru f12, i select the USB for the boot device, and Windows should boot from there. However, it changes to the 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media...' screen, and doesn't boot.

My USB is clean other than the Windows 10 ISO file I downloaded off of the website, and my SSD is totally clean.

Please tell me what I should do.

CPU - AMD Ryzen 3600
MoBo - Gigabyte Aorus B450 Pro Wifi
GPU - Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070
Power - Seasonic FOCUS GX-550
RAM - Team T-Force Vulcan Z 16GB (8GB x 2)
SSD - WD Black 500GB

(The BIOS is updated to be compatible with Ryzen 3000s, so there is no problem with that)

Oh, I have a Mac so the page says it doesn't support the media creation tool. Should I make a new download from a Windows laptop?
Yes.

Then, in the PC you're going to install this on...
