I recently purchased a Samsung 860 evo 1tb ssd. Upon trying to reinstall Windows, I ran into several problems. Most of these involved UEFI issues. After thinking I resolved these and installing windows onto the ssd, it goes into an installation loop. Even after removing the usb with the installation media it refuses to boot from the SSD, providing the error message that I need to select a boot device.
If it is relevant, prior to this I had several problems getting windows to install onto the ssd in the first place. It seemed that it would not install with UEFI settings in the bios on. If it matters, my system specs are as follows:
Gigabytes z170xp-sli motherboard
I5 7500 cpu
16gm ddr4 at 2333mhz
Any help is greatly appreciated, as I have ran out of ideas. Thanks.
