Maybe not, I have done it twice before but forgot how
You did quite well posting the screenshots. Now just look at the Advanced tab's SATA controller settings to see what choices are there, post back another screenshot if possible.

Read the bottom of the screen when you first turn on your PC. There it will tell you which key to push to get into the BIOS. basic input/output system (BIOS)

Usually F2 or delete.

So it doesn't interfere.

It would be good to know the SATA controller setting first. Did you check yet?

If you can change the setting to AHCI you can try install again now and it might work.

If not disconnect a HD to try it.

Then wipe the target HD to try again.

Recall I explained that in your first thread? What Device shall I get for 70

To avoid the chance that system files get written to the 2nd HDD.

You do not have to remove any drives, just disconnect the power from one.

On Sata Config from BIOS

It gives three options:
RAID
AHCI
IDE

RAID is default, but I broke the RAID a few days ago.

Shall I change to AHCI?
