New 500 GB hard drive is not booting

Hi All

I just bought a new WD 500 GB hard drive to install on my Dell Inspiron 1545. After I installed and turned the PC on, it shows no booting. What do i suppose to do? Thanks - Loc

by installing you mean you installed the OS right?

 

Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot from this drive..

Did you do a clean install of OS or use some type of image or clone it? Windows 7 uses a 100 MB file is frequently loaded as system reserve and it controls boot files.
