Okay, so I just finished building my first pc, power comes on, all fans turn on. I got into the BIOS and everything is accounted for, i set my RAM to be the correct speed. I followed instructions online about how to create a bootable usb drive for windows 10 - I'm wondering if the issue is that I'm downloading it from a macbook? I'll summarize what I did here:
- downloaded the windows 10 iso file from microsofts website
- used boot camp to create a windows 10 install disk
- made sure the iso file that i was installing was the right one
And then I had a bootable usb drive (i think?). Next I went into the BIOS and changed the boot order priority 1 to the usb drive that was plugged into the computer at the time, which was the same one I created before. I saved changes and restarted, and this time opened up the boot menu (?) using the F11 key. I chose the device to boot from, and then I got a black screen with a blinking underscore at the top left. It won't go any further than that, and I cannot get out of that screen.
My motherboard is the MSI z370 sli plus, if that helps at all. Can anyone help me out/tell me what i'm missing?
