Since you have recovered the data you can and the new drive doesn't have any data on you can try one thing to maybe "transplant" everything from the old drive to the new. You can try cloning the old HDD onto the new one, here's a free soft with which you can attempt that. There's a chance it would work, although your source HDD is pretty badly damaged.
