What is the capacity of the original hard drive and the capacity of the new hard drive?

I think your problem may be that your Laptop motherboard is not 48 bit LBA compatible so the BIOS is failing to configure the hard drive.

The threshold is 127GB in size. If old is smaller than that and new is larger.

Set the boot order to CD first. The CD must be bootable. On
some machines you maybe able to boot from a specially
formatted USB flash drive.
