My 640GB WD Scorpio Blue drive died in my Pavillion dv6 so I went out an purchased a 320GB WD Scorpio Blue - identical except half the size.
Using the recovery DVDs I did a "Minimalist Factory Restore". The restore process formats the partition then copies the nessesary files without error. When it is done, I am told to remove the DVD from the drive and click Continue to restart...
The laptop then restarts and hangs at the HP logo. In order to restart I need to hold down the power button and then boot the machine again.
I then get a message "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
I've tried the restore process four times and it's the same problem every time. I've done a HDD test using the System Diagnostics and the test passed. Help!

EDIT: I can access the drive through the command prompt on the recovery disks and I see various directories (Windows, Users etc) but the drive still won't boot. Also it thinks it's an 80GB drive not 320GB
