It depends.

If the BIOS is set to 'AUTO', then it will detect the geometry of the hard-drive, and then will try to boot from the hard-drive, but will unable to find the "boot" information, so it will state "INSERT BOOT DISK".

If the BIOS is set to 'NONE', then it will not detect the hard-drive, and will try to boot from the A: diskette.
