Default Please help installing hd in old comp..

Hi. I am trying to install a new hard drive in an old hp computer. I install windows in the new hd ( install in another comp) now that I put the hd in it says operating system not found, what should I do to make work? I am installing the hd because the one that came with it broke down and I couldn't install a fresh copy of windows in it.

AMD 3800 x2 Windsor 2.0 GHZ
1gb RAM 667 MHz
Asus M2N-E Mobo 9600gt
W.D 320 gb hd
Pioneer 111
LG dvd-rom

Windows xp pro sp2

you should install the new HD on the computer your going to use it in because it has different hardware from the other computer you installed OS on it

P3 Setup- Intel 1.0ghz , 512Mb SDRAM , ATI 9200 128MB, 2x 40GB HD, Asus CUSL-LV
