This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.

Disk Boot Failure


Any system can be recovered, although it depends on what is wrong.. this error can mean no info on the hard disk, or damaged hd...more than likely whoever had the computer erased it for data's sake...I would've...get an os and load it.
