    If you have copied everything ( including a correct wp-config.php pointing to a database ) file then WordPress shouldn’t be giving you an install option. It would instead inform you that it can’t connect to the database as an error if there was something wrong with MySQL.

    By showing an installation screen it usually means there’s no wp-config configured inside the base installation folder. Are you 100% sure you have copied everything correctly ?

    If there is no wp-config.php you can duplicate and rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php and edit it to alter the database information to connect with your new server credentials.
