It could be it is just booting, but that you don't get a screen.
Possibilities are a to high refresh for your screen or that it
switches to your vga port (which is unlikely since the nvidia cards I
have seen favor the dvi and only go to the vga if it is the only one
If you boot into your old installation with the new drive also
connected check out the boot log on the new drive.
Another possibility is your video driver. Are you using nouveau or
nvidia. If your video card is older and you are using nvidia, it might
not be supported be the newer driver on the new install. You then have
to use nouveau or an older nvidia. You can find supported cards on the
nvidia site. Against it is that you normally would get a text screen.
