      Installing a driver in Windows doesn’t make any difference to what the the install program sees when it boots from the USB or disc, since it comes with its own drivers. It couldn’t be installed on an empty hard disk otherwise.

      You say you want to replace the hard drive. So you removed the old one and put a new empty one in?

      So for now the questions are:
      1. Does the BIOS see any disk?
      2. Does Linux see any disk if you boot from a Linux stick or disc?
      If not, the new hard disk is not connected in the right way (no power or no data, bad cable, wrong slot on motherboard) or incompatible.

      If you are booting the Windows 10 install USB stick, often you need to add the driver for storage controllers. Such as “This package contains the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for the supported desktop models and operating systems. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology is designed to provide functionality for the Intel Storage Controllers.”

      Read the Windows section that applies at https://support.hp.com/bg-en/document/ish_4859717-4859823-16
