New HDD Into Computer Problems

So i Just Bought a new Western Digital internal HDD to replace my faulty seagate
it came without a operating system installed onto it and i read somewhere that using the system restore cds would put one on. i did that and it sad somthing about not being able to install because the seagate drive was bigger then the western digital, and that there was no windows image or somthing along the lines.

anyone know what i can do to fix this and get a operating system installed onto my new drives. if you need to know some specs of the hdds ill go find them and put them here thanks.

Are you using OEM manufacturer's Recovery disks
or
Windows back image disks?

Do you still have the "faulty" drive?

What was wrong with the faulty drive?

Go ahead a fill out your System Specs for the machine from which you are presnetly using.

I believe its either sticking or catching. it runs for about 10 maybe 15 mins tops and then you can hear it rev up then slow right back down and make a click noise. it does this 10 times app. and then blue screens boots back up and says operating system not found. I just filled out my specs so more help would be greatfull

Codeword,

Thanks.

Now, just to make sure I've got everything correct before I make a recommendation, then from the computer you are using,
then I need a snippet of Disk Management output.

Please read following carefully:
HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
Run disk management:
WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo (this pops up a menu) followed by X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field. This is very important, otherwise, needed info is not visible.

Make a snapshot:
WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save

Post the snapshot:
· Click on the paperclip icon in that row of icons at the top of the message box.
· BROWSE button. There are 5 choices.
· Navigate to the folder containing the snapshot.
· Click on the snapshot.
· OPEN
· UPLOAD button which is adjacent to the 5th BROWSE button.
· Close the MANAGE ATTACHMENTS window.
· Position the cursor at the spot in the message where you want the
snapshot to appear.
· Click on the PaperClip again.
· Click on the file which you want to insert
· Attach code will be inserted into your message.
