    New hard drive must show unallocated space because it isn't used before its fine..follow the steps and create partitions for your new hard drive http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/gg309170.aspx

  3. it's because you removed your drive with the OS on it. you need to put the old drive in and, if it's still set as your first boot priority, then you'll be able to load Windows and follow the instructions through the OS to format the new drive.
