I switched HDDs in my HP, the HD is the master and cd drive is slave on the IDE channel for the computer, and I get to the "Scanning Hardware configuration " for about half a second then it just goes blank and the HD busy LED stays on, no blinking.

off the top of my head... here are the things I check.

1, dips are all right for the master/slave
2, you've got the HD on the right IDE able/end
3, your bios detects the HD and is set for HD boot.
4, your boot sector on the HD is OK

that failing you can try go into the boot menu on start up and see if it will manually boot from the HD.
