    From your post I really can't tell what your asking but do not flash your BIOS. Flashing your BIOS should be used only as a last alternative and when it goes wrong you will end up spending an unhappy day at the store.

    Your new Hard Drive should have come with some kind of installation software. Insert the floppy disk or cd and reboot, you might also read the installation instructions.

    When you installed the new drive, did you partition and format it before you tried to use it?
