Also, have you exited the BIOS by saving and exiting? Press F10, Press Y, Press Enter. Then it will try to boot to a cd or hard drive, it won't find anything, go back into the BIOS, does the hard drive show up now? The reason I ask this and state this is because I've had hard drive not be recognized in the BIOS until the 2nd boot after saving what seemed like a BIOS where nothing had been changed.
I know how you feel, I've done that very same thing many of times.
I am about fed up with this machine so I need to cool off a little and try again tomorrow.
It is a possibility that the new hard drive you bought is bad. Usually when a client tells me that they bought a new hard drive and it's not showing up in the BIOS I respond with that the hard drive must be bad, Dead On Arrival.
I still think clearing the CMOS might help too. Let me know how things go, keep me updated.
