    When I press next on the custom installation.
    It says it can't format it so I tried to format it manual and that's the error.
    It happened to the new hard drive I tried too

    Did you have both hard drives connected?
    If so, disconnect the bad one and try again.

    Else, boot the recovery media and open command prompt

    That may be due to a hard drive failure. Try a flash drive OS like Porteus ( Put it on your USB through another computer ).This way you can run a live OS without a hard drive. Then using BIOS, change the boot order i.e Flash drive first. Plug in the flash drive and boot.Check if you can access files on the hard drive while you are on it.

    @TheChimeMachine, have you read this thread fully?

    We already found out that it could be due to a HDD failure, but there is a problem with the new one.
