Ill try to help the best I can. I have some questions so I can better understand whats going on. The more details you give when describing your situation, the better it is for us to help you with.
- What did you use to create your USB installer with? Is it the Microsoft Media Creation Tool?
- Is the USB drive recognized if your bios is in UEFI mode or are you installing in Legacy mode?
- Your specs show your 880 came with both SSD and HDD. Did you disconnect the HDD before installing the OS?

OK. I suggest you disable Legacy so its in UEFI mode. You can leave Secure Boot off for the moment.
I would try creating the USB installer again from another Windows 10 PC. I had an issue like this recently and the user had to use a different USB drive. Make sure the one you are using is between 8 and 32 GB, Not a bigger drive. Ive seen this happen when the installer was created on a 120GB USB drive, it would blue screen during install.
Here is the tutorial I post for showing users how to create the installer.
The main key here is to uncheck the compatibility box. The rest you know.
From any Windows 10 computer, download the MS Media Creation Tool and run it with the USB drive connected... Create media Windows 10
When prompted, accept the Terms and Agreements.
Next, choose Create installation media.
Next, uncheck the box for Use recommended!!!
Make sure the Language is correct and the Edition is Windows 10, 64-bit.
Next, choose USB flash drive.
Your USB drive should show in the list. If so, click Next.
Windows will begin downloading the files and create the installer . This will take a while.
When its done, you will see a message stating that its ready. Click the Finish button.
When you install Windows to the new drive...
Choose the F9 key for Boot Device Options.
You should see your USB drive in the list. You will probably see it listed two times.
Choose the one with UEFI in the title.
Choose to do a CUSTOM install. There you want to delete every partition that's showing. Then let Windows continue.
Hope that works now 🤞
