So this morning, my hard drive finally died after a solid 8 years. We bought a new one, and I downloaded the Windows 10 English 64-bit ISO file into a flashdrive. First I tried placing the ISO file outside the System Volume folder. That didn't boot. Then I placed it into the System Volume folder, and now it's sitting on a black screen with just a white bar blinking in the corner. Is this supposed to happen? Is it just loading? Or am I supposed to put the file somewhere else in the flashdrive?

You need to use Rufus to create a bootable USB stick.
