  1. A faulty USB you're trying to install from.
  2. A faulty drive you are installing to.
One or the other is likely bad.
Try a different USB first.

My SSD shows up in the BIOS and seems to be fine so I am pretty sure it is something wrong with the USB which is disappointing considering I bought the $120 OEM from Microsoft

Did this work? I'm currently having the same problem with a USB bought off amazon, currently copying it onto a new USB to see if that works
