During the process of windows installation, did you let the setup process delete all the partitions and format the drive? Was the error message showing after setup reboot?
Typically I would not recommend installing OS in such a big drive. Create a small partition, 100gb, for OS and apps. The large partition for you personal data.That way if OS fails and need to reinstall OS, your personal data is safe. Better if you have another physical drive just for OS and apps, and use the 2tb for data.
