You can try to copy out your data to external using the Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk following these steps: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

If the HD is not seen then there's nothing you can do except replace it. Hopefully you backed up most of your data as you went along.

The disk has hardware errors!!!! Has nothing to do with actions you performed. Maybe the disk already had hardware errors but it kept unnoticed.

Very strange if this happens with old and new disk as well. Maybe controller issue? I've got no idea if controller errors can trigger smart-errors

It is looking like you have a over heated MOBO, I would have it checked out at a PC Repair Shop.

Backup data first.
If you installed the new drive yourself I would check the cables are connected properly and havn't come loose.

Understanding S.M.A.R.T. and S.M.A.R.T. failure and errors
Troubleshooting a S.M.A.R.T. error:
If a problem is encountered, you can use Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (floppy) or a Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (CD) to perform a more detailed analysis of the hard drive. All Western Digital hard drives are compatible with S.M.A.R.T. version III.

Older versions of S.M.A.R.T. in the system BIOS may cause problems while scanning the S.M.A.R.T. in your hard drive. If the system BIOS reports a S.M.A.R.T. error and our Diagnostics do not report a S.M.A.R.T. error, please contact the system or BIOS manufacturer for an updated BIOS revision.
