I built my PC. It was working fine until a couple of days ago when the HDD stopped working. Everything in my PC is new except the HDD, so I bought a new HDD 1TB(WD10EZEX). When I go into the BIOS, the system recognizes the new HDD. I tried to install WIN 10 and get an error message that says "we couldn't install windows in the location you chose. Please check your media drive. here's more info about what happened :0x80300002." I tried it using these command prompts:
Diskpart
List Disk
Select Disk 0
Clean
And got the same error. I tried adding Create Partition Primary or Create Partition Primary Size=100000. And got this error in the command prompt that says "Diskpart has encountered an error: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). See the system Event log for more information." 

I tried new SATA cables and different SATA ports and still got the same error messages. My BIOS is in AHCI mode and it does not let me change it. My motherboard is MSI B150 Mortar. I do not have other SATA cables plugged in. Do you guys think the HDD is DOA? Or am I just missing something? 

I am using a USB to install WIN 10. I formatted the USB and made new WIN 10 Bootable USB and still got the same error messages. 

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure this will help but start by setting your UEFI back to default. Make sure you are set on UEFI boot and not Legacy. I would check you are using AHCI mode also.

 

Boot your Windows 10 USB and at the screen that shows language press Shift + F10 to open a command prompt.

 

Type

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk 0

clean

convert GPT     This is required on a clean drive if booting a UEFI computer.

exit

exit

 

continue with the install.

Download the Media Creation Tool and select the iso download. Download Rufus to the desktop of the computer you downloaded the Windows 10 iso. Select GPT partition scheme in the drop down box. Leave all boxes as checked. If you see FreeDos in the dropdown box select iso image, click the small icon and browse to the iso file. Press Start.

If you still get a redundancy error then the problem is the drive or motherboard if you tried a new sata cable and port.

Perhaps the new HDD is bad.  It happens.
