Windows 10 USB Clean Installation Reboot Loop

Q. After successfully upgrading Windows 10 I chose to perform a clean installation using a 16 GB USB drive. Upon running through the installation setup I get all the way to ‘Finishing Up’ at which point the computer says that it requires a reboot in order to complete installation of Windows. Following the reboot, the initial installation menu opens up again (where you select language, time, etc…)
