Ok, so I've made some progress. I had a HD with Catalina installed on it from a previous build. It was a Z390 Asrock mobo with my current Intel i5-9600K CPU. But, at some point, my OC stopped working, and I couldn't boot into it. I've now got the Z390M UD mobo from Gigabyte, and it's working much better than the Asrock board.

At some point the screen goes black, and, a few seconds later, I get the installer screen. So here's my issue. My USB mouse and keyboard don't work. I can't choose anything or do anything. My USB ports are working because I can boot the USB drive. I have XhciPortLimit checked in the config file. Anyone know what might be going on?
