Is this a second hard drive that you are trying to install? If so, open the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer management, Disk Management, and then NTFS format the new hard drive.

In that case, you need to install a new hard drive, format it NTFS, and then install a suitable Operating System such as Windows 7. After doing that, you can install the programs of your choice.

Does the computer post and does it fail?

Can you access the bios does it see the hdd?

Check all connections are secure and no damage.
