use microsoft's Download assistant to make a bootable USB drive, then go into your boot options and select your USB drive to boot to, then windows install should begin. 

 

your MoBo should have an easy UEFI that lets you just click the drive you want to boot to. 

if not, go to boot options, then change boot priority, make "removable media" the first boot device. (removable media may be named something else.)

you may also need to enable legacy boot if you're trying to load an older version of windows. 

 

always use the USB 2.0 ports on the back of the MoBo, not 3.0 ports or Case header ports. 

you cannot boot Win7 or older onto an M.2 drive, as the installation media does not have the drivers to recognize the new hardware.

Hey so i Did these steps but im getting a blue screen error. I tried using the usb on a diffrent computer and when i booted from legacy it worked fine. Maybe if there is a way i can switch the usb from Uefi to legacy would that help?
