install new hard drive problem

  hvs 08:30 28 Apr 14

I have an old Acer T 135 desktop which is in perfect working order but I need more space so I bought a new hard drive 160gb seagate ST3160310CS to replace the old barracude 80gb ST380013AS. The supplier said that this was compatible but I have tried everything I can think of to install the new hard drive but I keep on getting error messages. Error reading disk click on Ok it starts partitioning but then I get another error msg. Oxa000000e. I Placed the new drive in an enclosure and it works fine as an external hard drive. I placed the old hard drive in the pc after formatting it and my recovery DVD windows vista loads and installs but not on the new hard drive. Help would be much appreciated.
