Of course. You can use some live linux distro (Ubuntu in example) or Hiren's Boot CD (one of the best tools, download here: http://rapidshare.com/files/426971514/Hirens.BootCD.11.1.rar )

The most likely cause of this, is that the new hard drive is not the same as the orginal. Restore media is setup to install only on OEM. Orginal Equipement. If the new hard drive is larger or smaller then the orginal it will not properly load.
The easiest solution to this is if the new hard drive is larger, use a disk setup utility and create a partition the same size as the old drive.
If your drive was retail the software to do this will have been in the box. If you purchased an oem drive you can download the drive setup tools from the manufacturers site.
The drive setup utility is easy to use. Boot to it and choose setup drive. When selected it then procedes to the screen where you will need to set the size of the partition. 1024MB is 1 GB. This will help you detemine the size of the partition you need to set.

Yes. Install the hard-drive, and use Windows XP to "partition" and "format" the second disk-drive.
When installing Windows 7, be sure to "point" the installer to the drive-letter of the second disk-drive.
Windows 7 will create a "dual-boot" environment.

Unplug the case from the power, open the cover and try to locate on the motherboard a small round battery (a little bigger that the one at the electronic watches) TAKE CARE THAT THE TOWER IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS. Very carefully remove the batery and wait 1-2 minutes. After that insert the battery back, close the case, plug the tower and start the pc. It will boot at the default bios settings, without passwords but you have to make the settings again (date, boot order e.t.c.)
In case of a problem post back.
