You have at least a three issues here, maybe more. First the drive has to be backward compatible to SATA II 3Gb/s. Next you have to format the drive GUID and Mac OS X extended before you can install a system. Next. if you changed brands or types of hard drives you have temperature sensor issues as Apple used priority heat sensor drives and your fan will run wild. Finally why are you replacing the drive and o you have a Time Machine external backup?
