The hard drive you installed is simply a blank drive, it has to be formatted a specific way and needs at least an OS X recovery partition in order to install the rest of the OS onto the other partition. This page may help you: how to make a bootable OS X 10.10 Yosemite Install drive

Forget the MacWorld guide ;-} Much more confusing than it has to be. Follow my answer here: 1 tb seagate sd hybrid install went well; formatting not so much. Its simpler and quicker.
