Default error loading operating system on new HDD

ok, so i got a new 200gb hard drive to upgrade from an 80 gb hard drive. I wanted the 200 hard drive to be the only drive in the system. I initially tried to clone the 80 gb drive onto the 200gb drive, but when i tried to boot from the new 200gb drive, it gave me an error "error loading operating system" after several more attempts all with same error i tried reformatting and installing windows on the 200 gb hard drive. After the initialization it goes to reboot to continue and i get the error " error loading operating system" and im stuck once again. Im at a loss on what to do. any1 got any help?
