When you say it won't start up from DVD, that means the DVD drive can not spin the DVD inside, or the installation fails at some point? Have you tried another bootable disk?

Hi there,

Need to be much more specific step by step as to what you did to your laptop and what you are trying to accomplish. Sounds like you purchased a new HDD which was placed in the HDD compartment, which is seen by the BIOS but has nothing on it. If that's the case, it won't see the OS because there is nothing on it. Not sure where the Win-7 Ultimate comes in.

Possibly you are trying to cleanly install Win-7 Ultimate onto the new HDD? If so, you have to change the boot order placing the DVD first in order, and the HDD second. With the computer power on, open the DVD drawer and place the Win-7 disc in it, close the drawer, then reboot.

The other thing you might try if you want to get back to square 1, is replace back your old HDD, 1st in boot order, just as it was, and it should boot normally.

With more specific info, someone will get you going againg
