My old Windows 7 1TB Corsair hard drive stopped booting, wouldn't allow safe mode or system restore or logging in so I ordered a new WD Blue 1TB Sata6 64mb Cache harddrive and a copy of a Windows 10 disk from Newegg. I inserted the disk and went into my bios and set boot option 1 to my Optical drive named HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24 and launched and went to a screen that says "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Inset Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_"

I've read that I should try launching CSM and disabling Secure Boot Control, but I can't find that anywhere in my BIOS. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155.

My friend told me (after he told me to order a new harddrive and OS) that I have to format the harddrive first. This is the only PC in the house, everything else is mac. Help???

A full install of W10 booting from install media will want to format the disk.
