if your system is in warranty no need to do anything, just take it to a center
What was the need to unplug the hard drive.? Have you plugged it back properly.? Are all the connections including power connection properly secured.?
go to bios settings and make sure cd is set up in boot up instead of hard drive then after its installed set it back to hard drive
