I don't quite understand what Windows Boot Manager is. Rufus is almost done with the flash drive, will post the results in a few minutes.

Edit: Looks like it's installing now, there was a message that i accidentally skipped in the disk selection, something about that the disk isn't bootable and should configure something in the bios. But it's installing.

Did you boot installer as a UEFI device? If so after install it should have Windows Boot Manager listed as first boot device for a UEFI install. This is normal and should be left alone. Boot any disks as UEFI devices from the one-time BIOS Boot menu.

If it's not a UEFI device, proven by having no UEFI System partition in Disk Mgmt, then it's OK but you won't have some BIOS features like mouse support. Hardly worth doing it over.

Alright the installation is going fine. After using my samsung baracuda from the 90s, this new SSD installed windows so fast that im out of words to describe it. Yes the usb was UEFI and was booted first.

To be honest I didn't expect such instant help, you're an amazing person greg, thank you so much! Happy holidays!
