I can't install windows 10 to my new samsung ssd.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I'm trying to install windows 10 to my 500gb ssd. I am installing from a usb. I boot to the usb, go through the steps, select the ssd, once it installs all the media and restarts, it wants me to go through the process again. I try to boot to the ssd? says there's nothing on it, and so I'm stuck in this infinite loop of installing windows media to my ssd.

The USB install could be corrupted. Test another USB and report back.

Try and use the sata to usb and try and see if the windows files are actually on the ssd by connecting it to a different computer. Also as Elias said, try using another USB.

Is it a PCI-E M.2 SSD?

It's still doing the same thing after trying a new USB

 

How are you creating the bootable USB?

It didnt change anything

Install and remove the USB after the first reboot.

And you're using the media creation tool correct?

"reboot and selsect proper boot device"

So if I am getting this right the SSD is recognized but is not accepting the installation, try another SATA port.

yeah it's regonized like i can select it as a partition to install windows on but once it restarts it just brings me back to square one. I just changed ports and it did nothing

At this point in time I want to say the SSD is at fault, if you have another PC try to install on it, if it goes through something maybe wrong with the machine in question.

Check your motherboard for a BIOS update.

Look at the reviews and see if other people have a similar issue. I've had 2 Corsair Flash Voyagers 32GB that both failed randomly after a few months and that seemed to be the experience other buyers had.
