New HD, Fresh Install and:

1. Dropbox did not install?  
2. It installed and did not synchronize?

In the latter case, log into Dropbox.com with your userid and password, then log into the Local Dropbox with user name and password and see if it syncs.

Make sure Windows 8 has been updated to Windows 8.1 and make sure all .NET Framework has been installed. Dropbox works fine on these platforms (and on IOS) - I have it running. So check Windows Updates very carefully.
