Error 2000-0142, does indeed indicate the hard drive is toast and you need to replace it.
Regards to recovering the software, if the hard drive is still usable, the easiest procedure is image the primary hard drive to the new SATA HD, for this a cloning utility like Acronis True Image 2013 is required, this can be purchased from here:
If you buy the retail boxed version of the Seagate hard drive, a copy of Acronis should be included, this can be used only with their drives, or you can download it from Seagate website, you will also find that other hard drive manufacturers have their own free cloning software available.
First, install the new drive as the secondary, image the exsisting hard drive to it. After cloning, immediately shut the system down, switch the data cable [SATA port 0] to the new drive, making the new hard drive the master and see if the system boots correctly.
Boot the system with only the new hard drive connected.Remember to leave the original drive disconnected, until the new hard drive is working to your satisfaction.A second SATA data cable will be required, there should be a spare SATA power connector inside the case.Bev.
