So today I got a 1tb ssd as a replacement for my Hard drive. I created a bootable USB. Plugged it in. And made it Number 1 in my priority. And exited. I got a screen that had a windows sign. And it flashed. And showed again. And restarted my pc. I have been having the same issue all day with a flashing windows sign. And nothing else. I tried all of my USB ports. I have re installed the media using Rufus and installed it again using the media creation tool. All lead to the same error. My bios is F22 gigabyte. My motherboard is the GX-AX370M-DS3H. I need help. A lot of help.

No. You NEED to use a flash drive. It CAN be installed from a regular external USB drive but there are a number of hoops and some special configuration issues you have to deal with. It is simply not worth the effort. Go get a cheap USB flash drive, create your installation media on that and be done with it. Any office supply store, Walmart, heck, even a lot of convenience stores these days, sell them.

It's not a BIOS issue, unless you are simply not using the one time boot bypass option to select the drive you want to install from. If you want to insist on installing from an external hard drive, then you're on your own with that.

Right. "Thumb drive", "Flash drive", "Pen drive". These are all the same thing. What ISN'T the same thing, is a regular hard drive or SSD in an external USB enclosure, whether it came that way or was put into an enclosure.
