installing new hard drive

I am attempting to replace my factory WD 1TB hard drive with a brand new WD 2TB and my computer is not detecting the new hard drive even after I replaced it.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated

Since you can't be booting from a blank drive, what are you seeing on screen indicating the drive is not being detected?
