Error 403

I swap the old hard drive of my VAIO VGN-FW235J with  a new larger HD. When I try to use the Recovery disks I created when I got the computer. But Iwhen I started process to restore the C: drive, it comes with Error: 403.


I tested the disks using the old HD and I'm getting the same Error 403.


Any fix available for this problem?
