New Hard drive wont boot after recovery.

G62
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have installed a new hard drive after my old one bi the dust.  

I ran the recovery from the HP Disks.

After it formats the disk and copies the files, it will not boot from the disk.  

I have changed the boot order and tested the drive in BIOS.  

What am I missing?

Sometimes the new hdd requires prepping with Cyberlink Utility cd first. Download and Save the file. Once download is complete, put a blank cd in your drive and click the file to create a boot cd. Boot with this cd and wait until you get a green check mark indicating hdd is ready. Remove the cd , insert first Recovery Disk and restart the laptop.
