Hello, I am having a problem with my PC. Ever since today, when I try to install Windows 10 on my PC it reboots then one of three things happen: It gets stuck at "Getting Ready", it gets stuck at "Getting Devices Ready" and the spinning wheel stops, or it gets stuck at "Getting Devices Ready (Percent Here)%". Things that I have tried:

  • Used another drive that already had Windows 10, didn't work.
  • I used the installation media on another PC, and it worked so it is not a install media problem. (I also used the exact install media USB on this PC before this happened and it worked).
  • Unplugged all drives except for the SSD I want to install on, didn't work.
  • Used another SSD, didn't work.
  • Tried turning off my PC and back on via the PSU switch and power button, didn't work.
My specs are:

  • ASRock A320M-HDV R4.0
  • Gigabyte RX 570
  • Ryzen 5 1600 (14nm)
  • 1st SSD: SanDisk X400 128GB
  • 2nd SSD: PNY CS1311 240GB
