Installing new 1tb wd sata hd

Hello all, I'm a Mac veteran since 1984, and ordered the drive from here, but there is no place to plug in the heat sensor!

Using double sided tape, I taped it to the hd, installed, and now using the original os install disks, it will not boot holding the c key, or the option key.

Quite frustrated at this point. I know the installation was done perfectly, does anyone have a clue what I can do?

Put the heat sensor directly on the drive and tape it down with electrical tape or Kapton tape. You don't want the tape acting as an insulator. Set the jumpers on the drive to 1.5 GHz and try it again. It's to fast for your machine. Usually the two closest to the edge of the drive or do a search for Jumper and the name of your drive.
