Hello! (English is not my mother tongue; please excuse any errors on my part!)

I recently bought a new SSD for my mothers old Asus laptop to replace HDD. I decided to install fresh new Windows 10 to SSD. I removed HDD and inserted SSD. Then inserted USB (Windows 10 Media creation tool already installed) to USB port. After Asus logo animation it just goes into a black screen. (no blinking, no cursor, no text, nothing). Also noticed that hard drive small light is not blinking.

What I've tried and still same results (black screen) :
*Selected USB as boot priority #1
*Selected USB in Hard Drive BBS as boot priority #1
*Tried SATA modes with IDE and ACHI
*Tried to install with DVD-RW disk with Windows 10 iso in it
*Tried turning ON and OFF Legacy USB support
*Updated Bios Firmware
*Removed CMOS battery and after 20minutes inserted back again.
*Cloned from HDD to SSD with Macrium Reflect software with SATA-USB cable on a same laptop
*Tried formating SSD to NTFS
*Removed additional ram

Notes :
*SSD does seem to work on my Desktop PC (motherboard MSI Z170A)
*Also connecting SDD thru USB-SATA cable on a same laptop, Windows does sees it and seems to work properly.
*SSD was connected to SATA 0 controller. (which is the only place I can plug in currently)
*Bios doesn't seem to have "Secure boot state" (which is automaticly disabled) (dunno if it's useful information)
*I used same USB to install windows on my Desktop PC, worked perfectly.

*Asus laptop model is : ASUS x550cl
SSD model : KingDian s280 - 120GB
Bios Firmware : American Megatrends 2.07

I can't find any information about laptops motherboard, but maybe it doesn't support SSD?

Big thanks in advance and taking time to read/solve it!!!
