Hey, trying to install a fresh version of windows 10 on an SSD.

at first I had issues with CSM but have since sorted them, but now, when I try to install, it goes restarts, then I pull out the USB, and then instead of booting into the SSD, it goes to the BIOS and the SSD cannot be booted from but I can see it in the SATA connections. I have moved it to plug 1, have tried with and without secure boot for windows CSM is off, and that’s everything I can think to try. Please can someone help me through this pain.

I’m running
An Asus B450F
A Kingston 120GB drive
I have updated all my BIOS firmware and I am using a fresh media tool on a clean 16GB USB.

latest windows 10 iso from microsoft website?

what the cpu?
latest iso, sept 9th update for win 10, 2600x I believe. I’m gonna try cleaning the drive, then go back to the bios, change boot order. I take out the USB when it goes to restart so I don’t think that should be the issue but who the [language] knows anymore.
