Issue with installing new hard drive

HP Recommended
Hp Pavilion Gaming Laptop

So I took it to the shop and they said that my hard drive went bad, I didn't want them to fix it so I tried to do it myself and of course, things went wrong. I got the new hard drive which was the WD Blue and it says disk booting error. I have tried everything on the forms but nothing is working and I am not trying to take more out of pocket someone help me, please.
