I am sorry you have waited for a reply, longer than we would wish.
This is due to the vast number of posts on the site.
At what stage do you now receive this message. Did the O/S apparently install OK on the new drive.
Which Windows is it please
Vista and edition
7 and edition.

We may well have established that when you provided the details from the base of the laptop on what was installed and what were the recovery discs.
Sorry again we did not get to you in time to help

Is the new hard drive seen in the BIOS please
No bootable device message is normally when you are trying to boot from the hard drive or any other device that does not have a boot loader installed.
The recovery discs from HP should be a bootable disc.
You put the DVD in the optical drive, you commission the optical drive as first boot device in BIOS saving those settings normally F10 to save and exit OR if the post screen is followed by press any key to boot from CD you do that.

- Insert the recovery disc in the optical disc drive and start the computer. If the computer is running, insert the recovery disc and immediately click Start and select Restart to force the computer to start from the recovery disc.
- When prompted, Press any key to boot from CD or DVD, press any key on the keyboard.
- Allow the recovery disc to start and load the required files while the Microsoft loading screen is displayed. It may take several minutes to load the required files.
- When the HP Recovery Manager window displays, click System recovery .
IF the message is NO BOOTABLE DEVICE

As it is now some 9 days since your last post I wondered how you have progressed.
