Hard drive died & replaced with a new hd

Answers :

Make sure your pc is recognizing the drive before installing any program. If the drive is recognized but is still not booting, then reset your pc as soon as the pops up press f12 which will show a list of the booting order you of course will want to select cd drive or you can enter f2 and make the booting configuation changes thru your BIOS in the Booting Sequence. change the order or replace the drive or drivers and Voila Your good to go, Hope this helps

Good Luck =)
