Was the machine working before you installed the hard drive? Have you tried putting the old hard drive back in? With the frame off, look at the LED diagnostic light to the right of the RAM slots and tell us what you find. What are the last four figures of the serial number on the MacBook Pro you used? The same on the iMac (from the bottom of the stand). What OS X did you install? Was the Time Machine backup from the iMac or the MBP?
