Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

please state clearly what message it displays…?

************************************
Do you still have the old HD? Try replacing the new HD with the old one. If it works, there could be a problem with the new drive. Also, while inside the machine, reseat the memory modules and make sure all power plugs are firmly connected. If the Old drive boots and all seems to work, connect the new drive as a slave and see if you can access the drive.
Good Luck!
