Which version of Windows? Is that the EXACT error message?

go in there and check to see if the HDD is recognised.

Are you installing a Windows O's or has the machine just gone AWOL all of a sudden ?

Win XP. Not really sure of bios but did check and under HDD in brackets says the word none.
Sorry Vog thats maybe not the exact message but the jist of it.

Sounds like a hardware problem to me if the disk is not recognised in the BIOS.

Have you tried opening the case and checking that all the cable connections are fully "home" (unplug and reconnect)?

DITTO.. also in bios you may have an option to auto detect the HDD . try that.

Loose cable. Cheers.
