When booted from the disc, leave the Installer and go to Utilities > Disk Utility and run Repair Disk and see what is reported. All the signs of sick hard drive, or more likely with installing the new drive, the SATA cable has fractured. They become brittle with heat and age. Always a good idea to replace the cable when replacing a hard drive.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
