so if you converted drive to gpt, try running installer again.

if you have latest bios, i can't think of any driver software you would need.

Its just a normal ssd, not m.2 or anything?

the devices involved at that stage would be ram, hdd and motherboard, nothing else is needed at that stage of install.

Try another USB drive, often this error occurs because Windows doesn't have drivers for the USB drive. So make a new Installer on a new USB and see if it fixes it.

So windows can't see ssd?

boot from installer
on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose command prompt
type diskpart and press enter
type list disk and press enter
is it showing here?

have you got latest bios for motherboard?

okay, so after you typed diskpart it will show version and also change the path of the cursor to say diskpart>
then you type list disk (needs spaces) and press enter and it will show you something like this

so ssd shows in here? then it should show in the installer.

See if formatting it as GPT before running installer makes any difference

3. Type Diskpart, press Enter
4.Type List Disk , press Enter
5.Type Select Disk # (where # is the number your drive shows up as), press Enter
6.Type Clean, press Enter
7.Type Convert GPT, press Enter
8.Type Exit, press Enter.
9.Close the Command Prompt window.
10.Click the "Next" button.
11.Click the "Install now" button.
12.Put in your product key and click the "Next" button.
13.Accept the terms and click the "Next" button.
14.Choose "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)."
15.Select the partition and click "Drive options (advanced)"
16.Click "New" and then click the "Apply" button. Four partitions should appear. Click the bottom partition.
17.Click the "OK" button and then click the "Next" button.
18.From then on follow the on screen instructions till you get to the desktop.
Note: If you can't boot after the install you need to make sure the boot is set to "Windows Boot Manager" in the UEFI. Also, important info.

You said in 2nd post that installer can't see ssd, so I was thinking that sometimes it helps to format drive before running install process, even though a custom install already wipes the ssd.

In win 7 the devices thing could be newer devices that the installer doesn't have drivers too, but with win 10 always being updated, the chances of it being hardware win 10 1809 doesn't recognise is slim. as i said, its normally the USB

When i wanted to install win 10 this came up: A media driver your computer is missing. Thus could be a DVD, USB Or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD,DVD,USB Flash drive with the driver in it, please insert it now.

Note: If the installation media for Windows is in the DVD Drive or on a USB drive, you can safely remove it for this step.
