I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.
Indeed it could be the hdd. I would backup all files that I couldn't afford to loss ASAP. Then, I would do a fresh reload of your choice of OS. Be sure to do the full format NOT the "Quick" format. This will allow the system to recognize any bad clusters that might be on that hdd.
I had a Toshy A25, not with that issue, but I did erase Malware infected Vista from an Acer Aspire. The system is locked to boot from the HDD, so it needs an OS, I formatted an easy swappable Windows 98 OS onto the HDD. I was told Linux will work too. Get the BIOS settings to allow boot from the system's own CD/DVD drive! That is key to new installs, and getting the drivers loaded like they should
double check the new HDD, verify that the pins are not bent and are seated correctly. If all else fails, return the new HDD and have it replaced;
try partitioning/formatting the new HDD in another PC using a 2.5 IDE to USB external adapter;
clean the lens of the DVD/CD ROM drive;
remove the dead laptop battery and use only the AC power when installing;
most current laptops do not use a CMOS battery;
if you want to revert CMOS/BIOS settings to default, it could be done by pressing on ESC or F1 or as indicated in the display (depends on the version) and set all possible settings to default. Verify that it is set to boot from the CD drive.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Maybe its a software problem, have you tried putting in a bootable XP installation CD? After the bios boot and it asks you to boot to CD, press R for repair, it will try to repair your OS, and if it is an OS problem ,then it will boot once again... If not you can try formatting your HDD and reinstalling windows...
