  1. I found out what the problem was, and I have solved it. The partition on the new hard drive was non-bootable. The new hard drive came with a Data Lifeguard Tools CD-ROM. I installed the program that came on that CD-ROM and when I opened that program, I saw that it said "Bootable: no" for the partition on the new hard drive.

First, I tried copying all the files from my old hard disk to the new one. I thought I should be able to boot the computer from the new hard disk then, but when I tried, it said "Operating system not found". Then, I took the original hard drive out of the computer and used the system recovery CD-ROM. T
