I'm back Phill! What should we try now?
Dell Windows 10 - No bootable devices?

We need to try and confirm how much of the HDD has been wiped and how much if any space on the HDD can be written to.
Can you boot up DBAN and use the interactive mode option, this will show you any total HDD space and/or any partitions on the HDD.

DBAN is on one of my thumb drives (16GB), so yes, it was plugged in.

Thanks for confirming that it was your thumb drive.
Can you try using the Autonuke option but before starting the wipe make a note of the start time and upon completion the finish time, it can take many hrs to wipe a drive properly and if the process finishes in only a short period of time it would suggest that something was amiss.

Can you check that the time and date are both correct in the BIOS and if incorrect put them right please.
As your picture shows the HDD has been wiped clean and there is only a single 500GB partition on the drive, time to try again with a clean install of Windows, can`t for the life of me remember but do you have an ISO on both USB and a DVD disk, if yes to the DVD I would suggest that you tried to install from the DVD rather than the USB.
Fingers crossed for you and good luck.

It is looking like it is the HDD that has issues I`m afraid
Use the diskpart - list disk command to see what if any properties are shown for the drive then get back to us if you will.
