Can't Install Windows on Laptop HP 17-by4007nq

HP Recommended
HP 17-by4007nq
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just bought a this Laptop. It comes with Intel® Core™ i5-1135G7, Intel® SoC,  SDRAM DDR4-2666 16 GB (2 x 8 GB),  SSD PCIe® NVMe™ M.2  512 GB.

https://www8.hp.com/ro/ro/laptops/product-details/2100109223 

I'm from Romania and I bought it locally.

 It comes with FreeDos so I wanted to install Windows 10 Pro x64.

I made a bootable usb drive with the windows tool.

The windows setup starts normally and I go through the menus to choose the Windows version, language etc.

When I want to select the drive where I want to install Windows the is none.

The message is "We couldn't find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load driver."

I tried different ports and different usb sticks and never finds any drive.

 

I have no more ideas so please help.
