Clarification Request
I've had this happen hundreds of times.

I usually boot up GPARTED (see google for this freebie and tutorials) then make sure the new drive is BLANK. Delete all partitions on it since W10 and a few other OSes will give that message when there's a partition on the drive.

Re: no partition found

Then let the installer make one.
