So two weeks ago I put together my PC without any storage drives and it posted fine. Today I installed my storage drives because I got them a little late. PC still posted, managed to install Windows on the SSD through a USB, but I think it was because I did not properly select my SSD but there was some sort of system partition on my hard drive, so I couldn't use it. I decided to do a clean install of Windows because I didn't have anything installed anyway. So I boot from the USB, I'm in the repair menu, and I accidentally choose to boot Windows 10 or something like that. Now my computer is stuck in some sort of infinite boot. It will turn on, with all the lights coming on and everything working, not output to the display and not go to bios, and then restart in about 5 seconds. I'm completely lost, it may have been to do with me trying to enter Windows 10 through the USB? I'm not sure.
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
I tried unplugging the storage drives and the USB from the computer but it still won't output anything. It doesn't seem like it's a hardware issue, because literally everything was working till I tried to reinstall Windows through the USB.

One thing is I did change the boot order to the USB, and my USB light isn't flashing so it might be that. I'm completely lost and any help would be appreciated, thank you.
