I cant bootup a newly replaced hard drive with the original reinstallation disk for my dell inspiron laptop. I keep getting the message "no bootup sector" or no bootup disks. How can I get it to recognize the installation disk and load windows 7 on the new hard drive?

Does your hard disk is recognized in BIOS?
