Lenovo Twist - Windows 8 Recovery on new Hard Drive will not complete

My hard drive failed so I got a new one.  I did not have Recovery Disks so I purchased them from Lenovo for Windows 8.  I have tried to run the recovery program multiple times.  It goes through copying files from all 4 DVD's but then stops.  For up to 16 hours.  I have rebooted and tried tweaking the BIOS settings but it still can not get past this point in the recovery process.  Turning the computer off and restarting sends us through the same process of loading the recovery disks to the same point. 

Help!

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

Try wiping the internal hard disk drive or SSD, and then using the recovery media to restore to the now-empty drive.  Does that make any difference?
