Welcome, sachin_23!

You have two options to fix the issue. One would require you to re-initialize the hard drive in GPT, instead of MBR if you plan to use UEFI BIOS for your primary HDD. However, that would be a lot of playing around because it's a laptop.

Instead, I'd suggest you to check your BIOS settings and make sure you ENABLE Legacy BIOS (Boot with BIOS instead of Boot with UEFI). This will allow you to install Windows 10 successfully on the HDD without the need to re-initialize it.

Good luck!
