Did you erase the drive prior to or just after putting it into the laptop?

If not, boot from a Windows installer USB or DVD (in whichever version you use) and use a command prompt to run diskpart on the drive. To get there at the Windows setup screen press the shift and F10 keys together and hold -- you should get the command prompt window.

If you need to do this, please reply and I'll give you step by step instructions.
