ata is a big flat cable whereas sata is a newer thin flat cable. it really depend on your motherboard and if it accepts them. if you could plug it in then it means that it accepts the connection. you can use any harddrive as long as it has the ata or sata connection and also if it can plug in to the mobo (motherboard).the windows insatllation may not be recognising the newer drive or the original one. make sure you have the jumper pins on your original drive set to master and the ones on the new drive set to slave. then as the pc boots up repeatadly tap the delete key and you will eventually go into dos. in dos go to peripherals or boot devices (different with some) , it may be called something else but find the boot sequence and set your cd drive to 1st boot device then your old harddrive to 2nd boot device then 3rd to your new drive. or if you have a floppy drive you can set that to first and then cd to second and master drive to third. if you want to only use the new harddrive then you will have to set it as master on the jumper pins and then 2nd boot device in dos after your cd drive and floppy drive. then you would have to do a fresh install of windows on the new drive and not use the restore disk.then you would have to transfer your files off your old drive which you would have to set as a slave drive on the jumper pins. if you do a fresh install of windows then you could download it. if you still have problems then write back. if you do get it to boot up it may not recognise the new drive, i would recommend checking the jumper pins on the harddrives and then reinstall windows. and format your new drive.

your keyboard is not connected properly, because boot should response when you press any key, check the connections of keyboard or replace with correct one.
as far the massage concern, it shows the windows gone corrupt re-installation is recommended.
