      – He intended to install. But did he?
      – He removes the media? What media and when does he remove it?
      – What exactly is “nothing works”?
      – Does it works if he inserts this mysterious media?

      Just in case you mean the Windows 10 install DVD or stick, and he removes it after being asked before the first automatic reboot in the install process, it seems something went wrong during the phase before that reboot.
      See if he can boot into the recovery console or into a Linux medium to have a look at what’s on the SSD. There should be a bootable partition with some form of Windows. Also let him check the BIOS if it’s set to boot from that SSD.
      The exact problem, and the cause, are impossible to determine from your post.

      he installed it from a disc on key. after he removes it there is no installation to be found.

        That’s strange.

        There is no installation to be found on the initially empty ssd. What’s found in stead? Like:
        – nothing at all, not even a partition
        – at least one partition, but no partition is set as bootable
        – a bootable partition without files
        or …

        If you can find a partition with a folder, what’s the creation date of the folder? And what contents does it have?
        Boot into Linux or the recovery console to check.
