Test the HD with WD Data Lifeguard bootable flash stick and Windows version Followed by a full Disk Check from the booted Win7 installer's Command Line in System Recovery Options.

If drive tests out okay then everything that can be done to start it is in Troubleshooting steps below.

Otherwise I would do the Reinstall in link also below which results in a perfect install that will remain that way as long as you stick with the steps, tools and methods in the tutorial only..

Disk Check only tests the file system and not the actual physical condition of the HD, which is why I specified exactly which test can not only diagnose but also repair your brand HD.

You can't move Win7 HD installed on another PC without special steps to adjust it to boot. So you'd need to reinstall on the same hardware. Follow the steps in my reinstall link below picture

On the disk is now:
  • win7 itself
  • drivers for video, mouse, audio device.... et cetera
But all for OTHER COMPUTER WHERE YOU DID THE REINSTALL!
