Trying to install windows 10 on to new SSD but am receiving error code. It says a media driver your computer needs is missing this could be a DVD a usb or hard drive. Any ideas ?

If you have a second PC, you should download the Windows 10 media creation tool. Select download ISO (not download to device), then download Rufus, select your USB Fladh Drive that you want to flash the Windows 10 image onto and then select browse and find the ISO you just downloaded using Windows 10 media creation tool. Then wait for the image to be flashed onto the USB. Boot up your PC press and hold F11 (could be F10 depending on your Motherboard manufacturer). This will open up the boot menu, so make the USB Flash drive the first item in the boot order. Then restart the PC, and you should see the Windows 10 installation menu. If you have a profuct key, enter that when you're told to and then Windows 10 will proceed to install.

What could have caused this one:
1)Screwed USB port/media (or CD, which were you using)
2)Screwed ISO file (What program did you use for burning?)
3)Screwed BIOS setup (easy to fix)
4)Stubborn system (workaround needed)

Try these in order, if one works, it works. If it doesn't, next step.
*Try a different USB port if installing from USB.
*Redownload the ISO. Use a different option from Media Creation Tool (Install to USB/Make an ISO)
*Change the burner software (Make USB from MCT/Make ISO then burn with Rufus/Make ISO and burn with Windows 7 DVD/USB Download Tool, if you are using a CD you might want to use a burner software that can recognize and set up these discs and use lowest speed)
*Use a different USB drive. Or CD if you have one.
*Check your BIOS settings (Google your computer/mobo model BIOS menu for it). You are looking for a)Legacy/CSM Mode/Support (This should be OFF) b)USB 3.0 (This should be ON) and boot from the UEFI mode of the USB (it has a UEFI tag on it)
Workaround: When it asks for the driver hit Cancel and plug the USB into some else port.
