Question about Toshiba PORTEGE R500-S5006X Notebook
Only option is to get BIOS to recognize the hard drive. No going forward without it. You could try loading the BIOS defaults. Saving, and rechecking.

If you didn't get a maintenance disk with the PC contact the manufacturer's support. They sometimes put a backed up copy on the hard drive itself, if this is the case they will be able to tell you how to access it =)

Toshiba Factory Reset
a couple of ways to do that 1) if you have the recovery CDs supplied with the PC - then you can use these - put the CD into the drive and when it boots follow the instructions 2) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 3) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148
