Have you booted into the BIOS screens and looked around?

Well that is strange. If you have a bootable floppy, then you can start the hard disk driver manually and peek at the first sector. I'd suggest starting with fdisk. That may tell you something.

Cheers maschoen, it ended up being "defining HDD readings manually in BIos". GUess I didn't look close enought :(

This error is ussually because the last 2 bytes of block 0 of the hard disk aren't set to 0x55 0xAA. It ussually gets erased when someone uses "dd" to erase thier disk.

If you do a "fdisk /dev/hd0 info" you'll see the signature on the last line.
