The new hard drive is very likely the cause of the error message.
What is the model of HP Pavilion please and how have you partitioned

See this does it help
Recovering from recovery discs Use the following steps to recover the computer from a set of recovery discs (either CDs or DVDs):
- Before recovering, back up files from the My Documents folder and from other folders you may have created.
- Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
- Turn on the computer and press the Esc key when the first logo screen appears.
- Insert the first recovery disc into the top CD or DVD drive.
- Use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys to select the CD or DVD drive containing the recovery disc, and press the Enter key to start.
- If a screen displays Press R for recovery options , press the R key.
- A screen with a list of options should appear: R, F, and Q. These options can change depending on the state of the hard drive. For example, F- as it will in your case. Select one of the following methods depending on the type of recovery method you want to perform:
- Press R to perform a standard system recovery.
- Press F to perform a destructive recovery. This will format the hard drive. If the hard drive is new or has had the recovery partition damaged, this option will also create new partitions and format the drive.
- Press Q to quit recovery.
NOTE: When changing discs, do not press the OK button. Instead, wait for the drive to read the disc and automatically continue the recovery.
NOTE: If you are using a supplemental recovery disc (select models only), you must remove the supplemental disc before restarting the computer.<li>After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.
NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over several hours. Recovery times are most affected by using recovery discs that were ordered from HP and/or the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop).<li>Before using your computer, update and protect your computer. For more information, refer to Things To Do After Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP .

the keys which you get from your HP Pavilion PC.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system. Thank you for your cooperation.
I assume that you are booting off of a CD or floppy for the Fdisk and Format command. If not, then it won't work.
You can prepare the hard drive for a new OS by using the drive manufacturers cd. The manufacturer has software to format the drive.
