Hard Drive Replaced Can't Load Windows Operating System

I put in a new hard drive.
Need to put in windows xp operating system but all i keep getting is a black sreen with a white dash??
The cd starts to run (you can see the light on the drive drawer flash green and you can hear it speed up) then everything stops and the screen never changes.
I tried both drives in case one went bad but they both do it. Can you help

You probably need to go into your BIOS and change the boot order so that it reads from the optical drive first.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

THANKS! I will try that.
