I think I figured it out!
I believe that my SSD was defective, so that failed to register in the boot menu. My HDD that I was using did not have windows installed, so that failed to boot as well. I also think that that my bootable USB did not boot because it didn’t detect an MBR disk that it could preform the setup on.
The HDD that was from an old PC booted, which tells me it wasn’t a motherboard issue. The old HDD is slow as molasses because none of the drivers are up to date with the new system but I’ll be able to create an MBR partition on the drive I want to use and then use that until I can get a warranty replacement on the SSD.
