    it appears your disk is not partitioned correctly for the way your PC booted..

    with only the hard drive you want to install to , installed in your PC (only 1 HDD installed)
    boot from the setup media and when you get to the install screen - press SHIFT+F10 to bring up a command prompt
    type> diskpart
    type> select disk 0
    type> clean
    Type> exit

    Now continue with windows setup

    "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style."

    Boot in UEFI Boot Mode, so you can use GPT (GUID Partition Table).

    Here is info about UEFI Boot Mode (installing using the GPT partition style) and Legacy BIOS Boot Mode (installing using the MBR partition style): link
