I installed my new drive and entered the drive parameters in the CMOS, but the drive will not boot or it displays the message “HDD controller failure.” Why?

Most likely you need to partition and format the drive. Boot off of a bootable diskette, run Fdisk to partition your drive and then format it using the format command.
