Question about PC Desktops
I believe when you installed the new drive you either removed the boot drive with the operating system or caused it no longer to be seen as the boot drive by the computer. -- this can be reversed to restore the computer to operational mode
Another option is that you may have incorrectly formatted or partitioned the existing drive with the operating system instead of the new drive you were adding to the machine. In this case at best you have some serious data recovery issues or you may have lost the contents of the existing drive in the computer.
Without seeing what is going on this would be difficult for me to assist with. Especially if you did not format or partition anything. I believe the first step I would attempt is to restore the machine to it's original condition with the new drive and any other new hardware back in the box it came from the store in and the original drive reinstalled into the computer where it was originally with any jumpers set as they originally were. If the computer reboots then reply to this message and lets decide how to proceed with the installation of the new drive based on the items you believe you need to do.
I'm not sure how valuable this will be given the fact that the new drive install is probably the issue. But maybe based on what you know about what you did this may be valuable.

I assume you have windows OS? Which OS? Check your hd is bootable and actually is seen in BIOS. If you have formatted the drive yourself and not through the OS have you make it bootable? Clarify please. Describe in detail so that I can help you out.
