So , my sister's laptop is slow

I decided to swap the only drive the laptop has, a HDD for SSD that i just bought.

Swapped it successfully.

 

Then i tried installed windows 10bfrom a thumb drive, but the laptop couldnt find any drives. 

Im sure i plugged the ssd correctly, 

Do i need any driver or something in the thumb drive too ?

 

The laptop is Dell by the way.

 

Thanks ! Sorry im kinda new
