Today I bought a new hard drive for my Y510, but when I replaced the hard drive and booted up my computer it gave me these messages. PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable and PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. I know this means that the hard drive is at fault. So my question is did I buy a faulty hard drive or is the harddrive not compatiable with my laptop?
Hard drive spec: ( the one i bought)

Did you install Windows Vista onto the hard drive? It will not boot if no operating system is present.
You can clone your old hard drive onto your new one and keep the original Windows installation. To do this, you can use either Acronis True Image or Easeus Disk Copy. I highly recommend the latter.
