HDD issue No Media on New Hard Drive

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I am having an issue with a 2tb HDD 

i am trying to put it in an older pc and it wont seem to start with it being plugged in even with a boot drive plugged in. (i have a bootable flash drive ready to put windows 10 on it)

 

I plug it into my laptop via sata w/ power to usb to see if i could format it but it says there is no media and i can not intialize the disk either. the option isnt there. and i tried using the cmd to create a partition in it but it says there is no volume to partition. 

 

Any ideas on what to do next? 

 

 

I can see it in disk management, I can not see it in the partition tool on Hiren. 

 

Laptop

I am using a dell inspiron 15 

i5 8gb ram 250gb storage 

windows 10

 

Desktop to put the hard drive in:

a lenovo with 8gb ram

 (hopefully windows 10) E2-3200 cpu

 

I am using a Seagate BarraCuda 2TB Internal Hard Drive HDD – 3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch` Freshly bought from amazon this week.

 

As you will see in the picture it is listed on the bottom half, not the top half of the Computer Manager.

Just return and say it's dead if it's still within the frame of the return period. A USB stick just died on me the same way.

Thank you for the help, i will do that.
