First question is does the computer recognize it? To find out when you start up continually pres F10 (on most computers) this will bring you to the boot screen. You should see you new hdd on the list. If it  does you should be able to install your OS. Installation should set it as a Bootable Master Drive. you can then make partitions to store your data on.

Agree with kingdom. First see if the hard drive is recognized, then use your windows 7 disc to reinstall the OS. Windows will partition everything automatically for you.
