My old WD10EALX hard drive in my Dell Aspiron 560 computer went bad. I just installed a brand new WD10EALX as

a replacement drive, but cannot get any response except a message that says, "No BOOT device available, press

ENTER key to retry". I can choose the drive as my boot device in Boot Options, but all I get is that message no matter

what I do.

What is my problem?

Did you install an operating system? A new drive has nothing on it, so it would reply with no boot device available as it can not find a disk with any operating system on it.
