Access Denied 0x8007006.  How far are you getting in the installation?  

1.) Does your PC See the SSD?
2.) Does your Bios (UEFI) see this hard drive?
3) Is your UEFI set to boot with UEFI?

Is the BIOS set to UEFI?  and did you set Secure Boot OFF.  

Was the computer made for Windows 10?

According to the MSI Z270-A Pro motherboard Specs.  It's windows 10 Ready....:/  With Bios level 5.

For you reference I found a good article located here:,36160.html

But it does not tell you how to set up the computer to boot from a flash drive.  You would have to contact Microsoft.
