Build: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with stock Wraith Prism fan
ASRock B450m Pro4
Samsung 970 Evo 500gb SSD
Western Digital Blue 3TB HDD
2x8gb Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM
MSI Geforce GTX 1660 super ventus xs oc
Seasonic FOCUS GX-750 PSU

This is my first build of any kind and compiling and constructing it was way more fun than I thought it was going to be, but imagine my disappointment when basically the final step, installing Windows 10, is what puts that fun to an end. I downloaded and used the Windows Media Creation Tool to make a SanDisk Cruzer Glide 16GB flash drive bootable and do a clean install every attempt. All goes well with the install until it reaches the "Getting files ready for installation" part of the install and then my screen goes black, my LED keyboard shuts off, and then it all turns back on and I'm presented with the POST screen all over again. Ive tried most everything i could find in other forums online such as only using 1 stick of RAM in every different slot, only having 1 storage device installed at a time, CSM on/off. Nothing seems to work and the outcome is always the same. Any help is appreciated and i hope to hear back. Thanks.

Read this. The reboot is normal. You need to boot to the drive instead of keeping to boot to the usb after the reboot.

Unfortunately, this is not the case for me. It never tells me that a reboot is required and instead resets without warning when “getting files ready for installation” is at any percent completion.
