Windows cannot be installed to this disk.The computer s hardware may not support booting?

    Question

  • I recently bought a new HDD, as my previous one was failing. beforehand i set up a USB which contains the necessary software to install windows (i have tested it, its not the problem), but cannot seem to be able to install it onto my new hard drive. An error message occurs when selecting the hard drive saying "Windows cannot be installed to this disk.The computer s hardware may not support booting". After searching the internet for people who have the same issue, i found that nobody else has the same BIOS menu and i cannot access some specific features which are required to make it work. i have a Toshiba laptop which is quite old, for reference. 

    i would appreciate any help
