You can restore your crashed hard disk with the help of a third party data recovery software there so may software just go to the Google and put your desire keyword as your hard disk problem simply search for Hard Drive Recovery on the Google you find out more software choose one of them and solve your hard disk problem.
Most computer recovery disks will perform the formatting for you. (This depends on the Manufacturer and Model though...)
If you put the recovery disk into the computer CD/DVD Drive and restart the computer - to boot to the disk, it should launch the recovery process and warn you that the hard drive will be erased and all data will be lost. This warning step is the recovery disks way of informing you that it will format the drive.
To boot to the CD/DVD you will need to tell the computer to do that. When the computer first turns on, you should see a brief message at the very beginning of the boot up process. The message will say something like: "Press Del for Boot Device" or "Press F12 for Boot Menu" or something of this sort. If your recovery disk is in the drive and you can get to the boot menu by pressing the key the computer prompts you to press, then you should be able to start up with that recovery disk.
Allowing the recovery disk to run through it's full process should format the hard drive and set your computer straight.
Make sure to run all of your updates once the recovery is complete and also make sure to install and update a good anti-virus software of some sort.

You leave a recovery disk in for the whole time while your laptop is recovering as it is reinstalling the operating system, software and drivers needed to restore your laptop back to factory defaults. Never ever take out a recovery disk until it tells you to or when the system has been fully restored.
If a recovery disk is taken out before it has fully recovered your system you can damage your hard disk where it will become unreadable and would require another hard disk to replace it which could be very costly especially if you are out of warranty.
The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD. so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes. In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.
This generally indicates a hard drive failure. You can try to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc, but most likely you will need to replace the hard drive.
When you see the IBM screen you need to enter the boot menu. On this screen it tells you what to press to get to the boot menu. Place the recovery or operating system disc in the drive, and select the CD drive from the boot menu, then follow the directions. If the repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You want to do a full NTFS format, not the quick format, if the hard drive is bad, it won't format.
