After install new SSD drive, load of Win 10 from usb, blinking cursor

Computer problem 7 year old XPS Desktop, restored with apps deleted.  Took a least two hours.

On reboot Computer still had problems such as when opening a tab and selecting Yahoo from bookmarks nothing happened.  Diagnostic showed hard drive error. Installed new SSD drive, booted from USB drive containing Windows 10.  System recovery took about ten minutes.  On start up goes to Dell logo, then black screen with blinking cursor.

Perhaps Windows 10 was not reloaded?

I have a system recovery disk, but is buried in a storage unit.

Any explanations, solutions besides trying recovery disk?

All the files are backed up.

How did you create the USB with Windows 10?  Media Creation Tool?
