The motherboard is quering the 'S.M.A.R.T.' status of the disk-drive,
and the disk-drive is reporting that it is about to "fail".
So, your motherboard is showing that "Imminent failure -- press F1 to ignore this alert" message.
Take your computer to a qualified technician, to see if it is "too late" to recover any files from your disk-drive, and/or to install a new disk-drive, and to install Windows.
Yes it is possible to data recover from this hard disk to using "active partetion recover v2.0 or above" software. This software should be registered and also bootable disk. It will be possible to data recover, if it will be detect in dos mode.
Insert the bootable disk into CD-Rom and choose boot from the cd rom and now check your disk is detected or not, if detected follow the instruction and your all data could be recover with your complete partions.
i suggest that you'll buy another hard disk.. repairing hard disk is a tough job.. machines had done it, it is a very difficult job if its manually repaired... your hard disk maybe damaged if your system can't detect it. Just make sure that the cables are properly place/attached.
Is your hard drive detected by the BIOS? You can also
check this by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu
> customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select
system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok.
Click on start > all programs > administrative tools >
computer management > double click on storage. click on disk
management(local) here you should see your lacie. If you dont then the
drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just partition it
from here and it will appear in your my computer. If it is indeed
detected, you will have to use a application like Recover my files to
recover your data and then partition and format the drive.
Assuming this was your only hard disk, there is nothing on the disk for the BIOS to boot from. You need to boot from the installation disk for your operating system. The OS installer will then let you create a partition and install to it.
