Need more information: What HDD(s), SSD(s) are you using?
Based upon what you have said, my initial suggestions are to do the following:
- Install the latest BIOS and, from within BIOS Setup (Visual BIOS), use F9 to set the BIOS configuration to defaults (we may modify it later but don't need to yet).
- When you get to the drive/partition selection scene, delete all existing partitions on the drive.
- If the drive is an NVMe SSD, make sure you load the driver(s) for it.
When windows setup ask to chose the partition where you are going to install the OS, first delete all partitions that you see on screen (depress the red "X"). Then depress "New" and setup will assign new partitions where you will be able to continue with the installation.
You shall use the default Bios configuration (press F9 in Bios and save the results).
Already tried this. The error persists, something in the BIOS is locking/not allowing the HDD to be used.
Like I said. It won't let me load an updated BIOS even with Failsafe Watchdog enabled. I've already tried deleting, creating, formatting. I am really baffled as to what's going on.
I am still getting the error from the Windows OS installation, "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu." Even after updating the BIOS through recovery (which successfully updated it) and CMOS clearing. I don't understand what the issue can be now, this is really frustrating me, it's deffs not the HDD since I had it cleared (even of the System recovery partition)

Please access the BIOS and make the UEFI boot is checked, if you want to install Windows 10, and then press F10 on your keyboard to save all changes.
When the system is restarting press F10 on your keyboard to access the F10 BIOS, select the bootable flash driver or DVD and continue with the installation, make sure you delete all partitions on your SSD.
Please let me know how it goes.
