If you cant create your own, you may have to purchase it. You can see an example of a good install media USB in the Repair Tools list here; https://www.amazon.com/shop/pcmonkey.
If that fails, then the issue is most likely a bad Hard Drive. Replace as seen here; https://youtu.be/uZkmsJW5bbc, and install Windows to the new drive.

  4. You did not mention one important thing. That is Intel the VMD controller. In some cases that might be the problem, such as Lenovo Intel 11 gen laptops for example (it may happen with some other Intel generations). So what happens, the NVMe SSD will not bi visible for the operating system, after the initial setup, where you choose where to install the operating system to. The solution, you need to disable the Intel VMD controller and switch it to an AHCI mode, only then you will be able to continue with the installation.
