I wold say that the OP installed win 7 on the new HDD without removing the old. The installation was on the new but the boot loader was installed on the old. Now the old doesn't work as it doesn't find the OS on the new.
How did you installed Win 7 on the new HDD? Do you have a Win 7 installation disk?

That is because you assumed that I "bought" the hdd from a store. I got it for free. After reading your comments I realize that you lack orientation to detail as it is plain and forward yet you still dont get it....i will eventually find an answer or give up on it all together. But you couldnt answer my question if you tried. Why dont YOU re-read the post and tell me where you see it say I bought it brand new..I call it the "new"hdd because it was not the original one. Not to say it is brand new. You put those words into my mouth.

I never installed it on the new one. It already had it on there. I cleaned like always the same way I always do. Then reformated it to be just an extra hdd like I always do. This has never happened before.Why are people reading this post wrong. Quit assuming shit. If you dont know ask me. I'm watching the thread.

You are actually correct. You didnt misunderstand. It is 100% user error. I did something and dont really know what i did.

That is so not even close to this situation. How do you get that your os disk doesnt work out of My hdd just crapped? Wow dude. Your situation with your laptop is entirely different than this. Please fully read the question before you comment. You make yourself sound ignorant and uneducated.
