See above. It fails to "finish" the installation; it is not a failure to "start" the installation.
Possibilities: * the new disk-drive is defective; * the installation media is defective; * defective RAM.
Turn the computer off. Turn the computer on, and immediately keep tapping the F2 key until you see the "HP Diagnostics" screen. Run the diagnostics for RAM and for the disk-drive, and hope that it "passes" the testing.
Please report back to us.
