Issues reinstalling Windows on Dell Inspiron 11 3162

I'm having trouble reinstalling Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron 11 3162.  I am able to boot to the USB drive that contains the installer and go through the steps to install up to the point of choosing the destination partition.  I then run into this error:

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk.  This computers hardware may not support booting to this disk.  Ensure that the disks's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

I've tried a number of fixes to get around it including:

  1. Going into the BIOS and changing SATA Operation, but the only option is AHCI.
  2. Changing the disk from GPT to MBR and vice-versa.
  3. Flashing the BIOS to the newest version.

All with no success.  If anyone has any other ideas, I would greatly appreciate it.
