Fresh OS installation on New HDD

Hello,

I am trying to upgrade my Lenovo Y400 HDD as I believe it bottlenecks the system. However, I am unsure of what to do after installing a fresh NTFS formatted HDD into the laptop. I have tried putting the recovery disc into the laptop but nothing works. I hope clonning the old harddisk can be avoided as my old drive seems to be pretty messy.

Thank you
