Answers :

If you're not using the operating system from your old drive, go into your bios (usually by pressing Del, F1, F2, F10 or F12 when the computer starts) and set your first boot device to the original hard drive for your pavillion. This may be found in 'boot device priority' or a similar label in your bios.
