There are versions of free os's that you can put on pendrives ex Damn small linux, Puppy linux I belive If you can get on a computer and your currupted bias recognizes the cd-rom You can burn the bias to a disk from the internet and put it in.

Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.
If you set the boot order to USB first boot device and HD second. Insert USB and boot from there. It should find your HD and then you can install your OS. Another system for a different laptop will not work!
Plug in the Hard Drive to the computer, then put your Windows disk into the disk drive. You'll also need to enter the BIOS when your computer boots up and set it to boot from your disk. There should be an option that says "Press X to enter Setup" when you turn on your computer. (X being F1, F2, DEL, Etc.)
Once the BIOS's Boot Sequence has been set to boot from your disk drive, reboot the computer. It will eventually tell you to press any key to boot from the DVD. When it boots from the Windows disk, you want to set it to do a Custom Install. There should be an option in there to perform a clean install of Windows. Format the Hard Drive first, then create a new partition and install Windows on that drive. If you have more than one HDD, make sure you don't format the wrong one or you will lose all your data.

Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.
Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS. Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk. If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk. You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.
If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.
The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.
