Hi

I've got a samsung laptop and I've installed an SSD as my old Hard drive was dying, I'm installing a clean version of windows 10 from a USB using a build from the official microsoft site

All works fine, the drive is recognised in bios, windows installation options appear and I can go through the installation options fine. However when it comes to doing the restart the screen just flashes from grey to black continuously, could the SSD be faulty, or is my laptop not able to read it correctly?

Any help greatly appreciated

For anyone interested, I managed to resolve this.

The problem was with the USB install, I created an ISO image on DVD using the windows install tool and that worked fine, I hope this may help someone else
