Reinstall insider

I just installed an ssd in my desktop. So I’m trying to install the latest insider on it.

using a bootable flash drive. I boot to the flash drive, it is stick on the Windows logo.

I downloaded the image first using the media creation tool, that was giving me the same thing.

so then I downloaded the latest iso by itself and used refus o make a usb bootable.

still stuck on the off square windows logo.

what am I doing wrong?

I don’t remember the first time I install it last year taking this long to load.

    <p>If the system uses UEFI, make sure your USB stick uses GPT and not MBR, or set your firmware to boot in legacy/compatibility mode. That’s one point where issues can occur.</p>

      <p>nevermind, I just had to wait, and after about 15 minutes. It went past that screen. And another 15 minutes to finish setting up.</p>

        <p>That’s utterly bizarre! At least it fixed itself!</p>
