Mac has new HDD, It won't recognize flash drive to boot.

Hey guys, first time asking a question. I've looked everywhere couldn't find my answer. So I have this mac that I got for real good deal. It obviously hard HDD problems because the owner said the batteries blew up. Everything was really slow with the old HDD. So I replaced the hard drive with 320 gb HDD that has been laying around. I did all the necessary work to make a bootable flash drive because I have another mac.

Then It does recognize the flash, after I click the bootable flash drive it shows this no go sign. Looks like a circle with diagonal cross, and after couple seconds it shuts off. I tried to boot it from DVD but it doesn't show at all. I tried to hit "c" and "option" button. but no help. Please give me a solution. I really want this bad boy to work!

What does the battery have to do with the hard drive. What's your other Mac?

Your flash drive has an OS that won't work on this system. It must be X 10.4.8 to MacOS: 10.7.5*

Details: *This system can run the last version of OS X 10.7 "Lion." However, although it has a 64-bit processor, it has a 32-bit EFI and is not capable of booting into 64-bit mode. It does not support "OpenCL" either. Please also note that OS X Lion is not capable of running Mac OS X apps originally written for the PowerPC processor as it does not support the "Rosetta" environment.
