Matrix screen when I boot desktop up.

Specs: Windows 10
Okay so I built a pc. Everything works perfectly when o have my second (old) ssd card in my desktop. I saved everything from my old one to my new one. I installed windows on my new one. When I took the old one out rebooted and now it looks like the freaking matrix threw up on my screen. Now I'm sure it's cuz I removed all the drivers from my old one and now it doesn't want to work. How can I possibly fix this. I can not boot from a flash drive it says I need to insert a bootable drive. Now I have already made this flash drive bootable that's how I got windows 10 installed on my new ssd. So I'm at a wall at this point. I want to keep my old ssd in my laptop so it stays up go speed. And I want my new ssd to freaking work. Thanks for the future input guys. Much appreciated.

What does your laptop have to do with your desktop? You can't swap a SSD or HDD with Windows installed from one computer & put it in another. The installations are tied to the hardware.

Did you configure the desktop BIOS settings yourself or did you simply load defaults? If you loaded defaults, that's probably the problem. Go into the BIOS & run thru ALL the settings, adjusting them as needed based on your hardware configuration. Set the boot order so that the 1st boot device is USB.

"I installed windows on my new one"
Never install with another HDD installed.
"When I took the old one out"
The boot files have been installed on this drive.

Lets see if this boot program, installs the boot files.

#2: To go into more details and explain it in case you missed the main point:
Windows installer has this a fault or glitch, whenever you have more than one hard drive installed when installing Windows, even though you point to the specific drive to install it on, it looks for the 'best' place (not) to install the boot sector on. This is not always the same drive as Windows is being installed on unless there is no other drive installed. In the case of an otherwise bootable drive, it probably made your laptop drive into a dual boot boot sector so I hope that it does not also cause issues for your laptop. The ONLY way to install Windows on a drive COMPLETELY with boot sector, OS, and reserve partition is to only have the one drive plugged in.
Please follow JohnW's advice and t should straighten you out.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
