Hi. Make sure first that harddrive is being recognized by your motherboard if you go to Bios setup. Formatting wont damaged the harddrive. Check also physical connection if possible.

where are you installing the operating system from? is it from a a cd, if it is from a cd, i advice you get another copy of cd because the one you are trying to use to install on your laptop is corrupt that is why your laptop is not recognizing it, get another copy of the operating system to install on your laptop. or perhaps, the lens on your laptop could not read the cd anymore because it is weak, if you get another copy and the same, it means the lens of your laptop is weak and could not read the cd.

According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.
