1. I would suggest taking it to a computer shop and having them take a look at it or run system diagnostic.
2. Your new hard drive could be bad or defective, might have gone out or something got way to hot inside there and got toasted.
3. You need to reinstall diffrent hard drive or try to remove all, you should try boot laptop with out any hard drive ?
4. Disconnect your hard drive see if no longer freezes during system boot?
I'm afraid, this has happened to me a few times.

I also reran the recovery process and it completed the installation. Still can't get passed hp screen.
If the new hard drive is shot would I be able to complete processes?
