Make sure you have the latest BIOS update, if so then reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

While in BIOS set SATA controller to AHCI to try install, then IDE if it fails. It is unlikely you'll need SATA drivers but you can try inserting them (unzipped to flash stick) at Load Drivers link on drives selection screen.

Try preformatting the HD using Diskpart, use Step 2.2 to mark it active: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Will any other OS install on the new HD? If one already has, then wipe it first using Clean All command.
