Have an older HP 500-164 that the Hard drive crashed so I purchased a new WD Blue 1TB SATA. Got a new USB Windows 10 Home for install but the PC contunies to reboot into the setup screen. The HD is set at GPT and secure boot. Not sure where to go from here. Thank You

Just curious, did you pick the GPT or did Windows 10 install? GPT is more for a newer motherboard BIOS that uses UEFI. That motherboard /PC came with Windows 8 but it might not like the GPT environment. For a 1TB disk, MBR is OK. See if it will run OK in that scenario.
Also, if that PC had Windows 10 installed before the disk crash, it was not necessary to purchase a new Windows 10. You could have installed using the M$ Media Creation tool
Scroll down to the "Using the tool to create installation media" and follow the directions. Then reinstall Windows 10 using that new media.
I'm not an HP employee.

Has been solved, it had a new HD but the same motherboard and tried and tried to use the media creation but did not work. I Found that the piece I was missing was deleatign the partitions that were showing up during install. After deleatign these 2 partitions, everythign went smooth.
