If the bios or setup utility can't detect your hard drive then this can be a physical problem. I suggest that you reseat or tighten the cable connecting your hard drive to the motherboard. You need to open the hard drive panel then unplug and replug the hard drive cable.

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.
Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

It does sound like the hard drive has died but the only sure fire way to check that is to remove it and try it from a proper PC using a cheap 2.5" enclosure.
If a normal PC can read it then it is more likely to be the hard drive controller on the motherboard which can be an expensive repair.
You can always get another drive if yours is pooched and you are not limited to the same size, You could get a larger one
You will however need an operating system.
