cannot boot from replacement HDD

Hi everyone, I have just replaced my old HDD with a bigger one but cannot get it to boot from the new one whatever I do. O/S is Win7 Home Premium. Drives are sata. Copied everything from the old to the new (cloned the C to D) When I try new drive I get error (boot mgr missing) or NTLD missing and some others of the same vein. Tried many times and looked at postings here and on the net but just can`t get it to work. Any suggestions.

Hello again, I realize that the DVD is separate from the HDD`s, the problem was I could not boot the Win 7 disk from it. This was because I was unfamiliar with the Win 7 bios drag and drop, thought I had made DVD first boot device but had not. Once I had figured that out I was able to run the auto repair which has worked. Just one small thing to sort, the display is not central on the monitor i.e. 30mm black margin on left 30mm of right side not shown.

Thanks to all for your help.
