trying to install windows 10 on a new ssd and I'm met with this error. any advice?
Starting advice, would be to give us some details:

What motherboard?
What specific SSD?
What port is it connected to?
Is this the only drive currently connected?
Which version of Win 10?
Where in the process do you see this?
You've deleted ALL partitions on the drive for this install?

etc, etc.....

This is the same system from yesterday, here?
I seem to have gotten past the error. But now "Copying windows files" is stuck at 0%. Think my processor could be fried?
