If you lost your hard drive and only have the new one, then how can you have windows at all? Does your computer see the new pci sata adapter(which exact one is it)? It should be called a pci sata controller card? Usually you need to set it up with it's bios and the computer's bios to boot a new drive and then you can install windows on it by booting to the windows cd, hitting F6 when windows asks for other controller drivers. There's a lot of things required here and they are not user friendly at all.
No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
