Method 1: Verify the BIOS settings Verify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk. See the computer documentation or contact the hardware manufacturer for information about how to verify the BIOS settings.
After you verify that the computer's BIOS detects the hard disk, restart the computer, and then test to determine whether the issue is resolved.
If the issue is not resolved, or if the computer's BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, you may have issues with your hardware.

Method 2: Use Recovery Console Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition.
Warning This command can damage your partition table if a virus is present or if a hardware problem exists.
If you use this command, you may create inaccessible partitions.
We recommend that you run antivirus software before you use this command.
We also recommend that you backup your data before you use this command.
If the fixmbr command detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, the fixmbr command prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR.
The fixmbr command is supported only on x86-based computers.
