Well you donot need special programs you can use the same operating system to format, partition and load your operating system, after you connect your harddrive to your board go to setup Bios and look for the hardware that installed on your chip and you will see if your hardrive is recognized, After that load your operating system cd on your dvd rom and let the pc boot to that dvd drive, here the you will start loading the operating system, so you have to format, partition and then install windows, Try windows vista will make it easy for you.
Best Regards

Says boot device not found .please install an operating system on your hard disk


it means there is no operating system on the device you are using to boot your computer. make sure you have your boot device set to your hard drive unless you are installing a new operating system if so your first boot device should be your cd/dvd and your HD peta/seta IDE second .

Installing new hard drive in a aspire 5736z


Yes you need to install the operating system back to your computer and you also need to install the drivers and the programs on it. New hard drives are blank.
After installing everything up, don't forget to add a premium anti-virus. That's very important. You should also add a tech software like RadarSync so that you won't have to worry about getting your computer's drivers updated.

Will not power on at all need to get data from hard drive .i hooked it to adapter can feel it running but will not show up on my computer old system was xp media new one is 7


Remove the drive from your old laptop. Order a Sata to Sata/Ide hard drive adapter or a Sata wire with a usb connector from a place like Tiger Direct or Staples. Plug in the Sata wire into your drive (It is the only wire you need to make the hookup complete) then check to stt if Windows 7 recognizes the drive. If not you will need to get some software (downloadable and usually free) that will transfer files between operating systems.

Im using hp dv6700t laptop,i want to install xp on my laptop


Your laptop has a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't recognize those drives cause the operating system came out before those drive were made.

Follow these steps I found thru google to get windows xp sp3 to recognize your drive:

You'll have to use a program to do this but people explain how to do it on that page plus the program is free.

you will need to install the drivers for your drive.
xp doesn;t recognize 2.0 usb unless you install drivers and have a usb 2.0 port
but install the drivers and you should get it to recognize

you can go to control panel, system and device manager.
look for a usb device that is not working and right click install drivers or update drivers.
See if it comes up.
Once it does you will see it in the device manager under disk drives

Installing xp operating system


If it's not detecting the hard drive a 64 bit CD isn't going to help! You need to remove and reseat the hard drive and if it still won't recognize the drive, seriously consider the possibility that your drive has failed. Reasonably priced replacements are readily available.
