    Two things that could be an issue: (1) if the HDD is set as a dynamic drive instead of basic, and (2) if it is GPT partitioned you need to install to it using a UEFI interface instead of an older bios type. So if (1) convert it to basic, and if (2) either convert the drive to MBR partition or install using UEFI.
