Specs: Windows 10
I am a first time builder and I am using a usb boot drive to install Windows 10 on a new hard drive, but when I try to boot from the usb the light on it shows it is being accessed and my monitor shows the Windows logo but then it just stops loading and nothing happens. Does anyone have a solution?

What motherboard are you using? Do you have your board set to use UEFI? Also you could try to get the windows installer to load by using a minimum system configuration. So if you have video on your motherboard, remove your video card and use the on board video, remove any pci cards, use only one stick of ram, and disconnect anything else that is not needed. Also try to use a USB 2.0 port if your board has one.
