Okay haha, I know it sounds like I worry about the smallest things but I want things to be organized.

So assuming I disconnect my hdd (keyboard and mouse should be fine right?) and boot my usb installer, I go to the file location to install windows I see my ssd as the only option and then after it boots up on my ssd running windows I plug my HDD back in right and then I would fix my bios resolution?

Not sure if it posted, but I don't see it so I'll say it again. This is what I do once I'm home:

Disconnect hdd, boot up from usb and install on SSD then once windows starts running I plug back in HDD?

Hi,
Yes that sounds correct
You might get a check disk popup message about the hdd but it should be okay after it completes it's check.
It might be easier to connect the hdd using a exterior enclosure and connected via a usb port but shouldn't be necessary until you reformat the hdd or clean it...

I would still guess the builder... set it up as a Raid configuration which isn't necessary really most people do not need the added complications.

Also just to get win-7 installed they had to jump through some hoops to get win-7 installed on a skylake processor so with that and now you're on 10 anyway the bios settings are no longer needed
But 10 was upgraded with those bios changes

Now you can reset your bios and clean install 10 without any issues on skylake.
The tutorial should be pretty clear if you have issue post on tenforum's I'm sure someone can help
Cheers.

Only problem that is left is when I reset my bios it gave me the 1024 resolution. I looked around on the web but couldn't find anything to change the resolution. Do you know any fixes?

Hi,
I'm not familiar with skylake or msi bios I believe that is the brand mother board you have ?
Usually it's a setup when you first start the machine using F2 and the drivers dvd I believe where you select language and interface color....
I just looked at my asus x99 and couldn't find anything on resolution or bios interface options at all unfortunately
All I know is to enter setup you might use F2 it didn't do anything but enter the bios again same as the delete key does

Don't RESET your BIOS. It may have a factory profile in it.
I've downloaded the manual for the Msi z170a gaming pro MB. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/supp...ml#down-manual.
As mentioned, detach the sata cable from the HDD.
1-Enter BIOS settings pressing Delete key during POST.
2- On page 42 of the manual it has the profile menu that I mentioned before. Se if your MB has a profile saved so you can restore your BIOS from Cyberpower. If it does, load the profile and go to step 5
3- On page 41 press the XMP button to load memory XMP.
4- Press F7 to enter advanced mode.
5- On page 47 make sure Windows 8.1/ 10 WHQL Support is enabled.
6- On page 48 set secure boot to disabled.
7- Place the Installation disk on the drive.
8- Save bios settings and boot,
9- During POST press F11 to enter boot menu.
10- Select the installation drive in UEFI mode.
11- Follow instructions.
