If you can get to the BIOS, the first screen usually has Date, Time and Disk information displayed. If there is no disks listed or your new disk is not listed, then it may be not properly attached. The power cable may not be makeing a proper connection. Also check both the motherboard and disk drive ends of the Data cable (the wide flat 40/80 conductor cable). The top menus should have an option called "Boot" or "Boot Order" where you can change it.
