Just a quick update to let you know it worked. Thanks for the advice Goddess_Bastet and smax013, I really appreciate it.
However I did experience a small glitch during the installation process that I was able to get around with a little logic and a little luck. So I want to document how I got around it just in case anyone else with same problem reads this thread.
After it went through the process of copying Windows files, installing Windows, installing features, and installing updates, it tells me it needs to restart my computer to finish things up. I have installed various versions of Windows on other machines before, so I knew that was normal and I let it restart.
So it restarts. And then... It begins the installation process all over again. I suddenly found myself stuck in an installation loop. I went through the process of reinstalling maybe three or four times before I suddenly thought to myself, "Wait a minute..." I figured the BIOS is probably still telling it to boot from the USB drive, which is a boot disk. So every time it reboots, it starts the installation process all over again. Since all the necessary Windows files seem to have been installed already, I decided to take a risk and see what would happen if I removed the flash drive at the exact moment it restarted. So I tried that, and sure enough it worked. Everything finished up exactly as it normally should, and I now have a fresh, clean install of Windows 10.
