That message does usually indicate the hard drive has failed.  But it could also mean the boot manager has been corrupted or there could possibly be some media left in a DVD/CD drive or card reader, too.  Check any other devices for the presence of media left in.  If all are clear, then start the computer with Windows install media and pick repair instead of install.

 

BTW: if the Recovery disk set or Windows install was not run to reinstall anything on the new drive, that would explain the message on the new drive.  Run the Recovery disk set on the new drive or reinstall Windows.
