Linux install questions..Newbie

Linux install questions..Newbie:

I have used Mint before on a really old laptop when I ran into driver issues. It was pretty good.

Now I want to install Mint onto a PC i am going to use a Plex server.

My questions are:

Can I install Mint onto the HD of the new build? I downloaded Cinnamon. Do I just copy it over the the blank HD?

Also, I have a TB of shows and movies I want to move onto the new drive, can I do that while its connected to my Win10 puter or should I wait until the new computer is running and on my network?
