Did you buy the hard drive from new aswell? i.e It has no operating system on it?

Is the Hard Drive set to boot first device?

Did you install an operating system? Linux or Windows?

There is you're problem.

Maybe you should install the OS first. Just make sure the DVD/CD ROM drive is set to first boot, so that it can detect the Windows or Linux CD in your drive.
