We need more details.
What system? Desktop? What hard drive? Was this drive added as secondary drive or was this a replacement of the original? If replacement, was this an image, or was this a clean install? Was there a problem originally, or was this for more room (or other reason)? Have you had any other problems lately? Is this computer fairly new? Did it come with Windows 7, or something else? How long has it been operating before you had any problems? ETC!!!!! I could think of many more, but 15 seconds is all I will spend without proper information.

Just to restate, Hp dv9000 laptop, hard drive failed after about 1 year, installed new hard drive and new installation of Windows 7, but 4 days later, you get a no operating system found message.... It sounds like probable hardware problem, most likely, is memory. A bad RAM stick is possible, and could have appeared earlier like a failing hard drive (that may still be good).
First, try inserting the Windows 7 disk and if it boots to the disk, try a repair. (note, if it cannot read the W7 DVD, it is probably the memory). If the repair apparently works, I would test the memory anyway (to eliminate possible future problems).
Second, use Memtest (burned ISO image onto a CDr which will be bootable) to test your memory. Memtest does not use the hard drive or your operating system. Run Memtest through all tests (I think there are 8 tests) and if it freezes or finds errors, rerun with one stick of RAM at a time (assuming you have 2) to see which is bad, replace as needed.
Get back to us with details of what worked or did not work.
Also note, you might want to see if your laptop is still under warranty.

Memtest is a more complete test of memory than BIOS tester. Whether you repaired or reloaded windows, I would recommend testing your memory so if you have any other problems in the near future, you will know that it is not connected to RAM. Memory problems will often start out occasionally and randomly, but get worse over time and can often appear as another problem.
