Question about IBM ThinkPad R52 Notebook
He! i have 1 ibm thinkpad R52, the problem is "no detected hard drive in BIOS, i check the BIOS setting, change the hard drive to other an nothing;
The hard drive may have dislodged from the HD terminal. Some early laptops didn't reinforce the connection here. There is a bay under the laptop with a HDD or O)) symbol that opens with a small Phillips screwdriver. There should only be 2-4 screws on the bay panel. Open the bay. The hard drive should be firmly connected to the computer. Make sure the connection is good, then replace the bay cover and screws.
Start up the computer...Update the post on your outcome.

SOURCE: How to reformat R52 ibm thinkpad
Your laptop should have come with a recovery disk, you will need to boot to that disk following the onscreen steps for formatting and restoring the operating system files. Furthermore, if your system did not come with a recovery disk, or you have a Windows XP/Vista disk you can boot to that instead.
Windows XP Install:
After the installation system boots, the setup prompt will prompt you for searching the system for previously installed versions of Windows; bypass the recovery option after the search is complete. The setup will then display a list of Hard Drives to install Windows; follow the key for deleting the partition (press "D" to delete). Once the partition has been deleted highlight the "free hard drive space" and press "Enter" then you will be prompted to format the drive and install Windows. Moreover, you should right down the Windows Product Key off the sticker on the bottom of your laptop; you'll be asked for that key after the setup restarts your computer assuming you are using that license for that version of Windows.
Windows Vista Install:
When you boot to the Vista DVD you will be prompted to enter the product key as soon as the setup loads. Select the Hard Drive with the mouse, then left-click the format button on the right pane. Continue with the installation.
