Hi Suresh,

I am sure you have checked the Hard Drive getting detected in the BIOS (System Setup). If it is not detected in the BIOS, try connecting the Hard Drive to other connectors for Hard Drive on the motherboard. Also ensure you have a good Hard Drive Data Cable (you might want to try the Cable from the Optical Drive in your computer or from your friend's computer).

If the Hard Drive is detected in the BIOS but is not booting to the Windows, try to check the Boot Sequence in BIOS (Select Hard Drive as the primary boot device).

Do reply with results.
