It means that there is no operating system installed on your hard drive and so it will not work until you add one. Buy a windows xp disk or an operating system that you wish to use and put the disk in the cd/dvd rom. Reboot the pc to get it to pick up on the disk in the drive and then follow the prompts to install an operating system.

My hitachi xl1000 fell over and now it's making a clicking sound and not being recognized by my Imac


Unfortunately, if the drive falls it can damage a drive, if it is running it can be very bad. The clicking sound you hear is the drive heads clicking against the platter. Your drive will need to be replaced.
