Replacing the Hard disk on my pavillon dv6 - 3150ee but bios is not recognizing it.

Hi, 

 

I have an HP pavillon dv6-3150ee . my original hard disk was broken . I bought a western digital 500 GB 5400 Sata 2 . 

 

I installed the hard disk and made the recovery. Everything went fine and ok . When the recovering operation finished, the system restarted to continue the installations of the hard drives but ..... i had this message : no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key . 

 

so i went to bios and tested the memory and the hard drive and everything was ok. I tried to enter my bios advanced options but there ain't any. My bios version is F.12 . 

 

i don't know what the problem is and i will be thanksful for any help. 

 

N.B : i have my recovery disks as well as my windows reparation disk. 

 

Thank you.

Sometimes the new hdd requires prepping with Cyberlink Utility cd first. Download and Save the file. Once download is complete, put a blank cd in your drive and click the file to create a boot cd. Boot with this cd and wait until you get a green check mark indicating hdd is ready. Remove the cd , insert first Recovery Disk and restart the laptop.
