You said you changed the HDD, but if the new one is blank, that would produce the same error message.

Not being able to see the PC, I have to guess -- but that message typically means the installer is having problems "seeing" the drive -- which is surprising if it then, without adding drivers, actually completed the installation.  It sounds like the boot files did not get written to the drive -- but again, I have to guess.

 

Windows PCs use two different sets of files to get you to a working desktop.

In terms of the first, Windows boot files, you need to follow the instructions below to create boot media from Macrium Reflect (MR) that can be used to rewrite/repair the boot media on your PC:
1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from this link on a working PC: http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
2) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD

That will create MR bootable media. Then, you can boot your PC into WinPE using that media.

Have patience, as that can take a while to start and bring up the screen.

Once the screen is there, select the option to Fix Windows boot problems. It will then search for the OSs installed and list them, Select the one you want to repair and click Next.

It will now do the repairs, listing the things it has done.

When finished, select the option to Restart the PC.

If this worked, the boot repair succeeded and you will have your PC back.

But if it did not, the Windows system files are most likely corrupted and you would have to reinstall Windows from scratch to fix that.
