That is an incorrect configuration error: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000406.htm
Either the driver is improperly jumpered, or it is not being detected correctly.  If it's not detected properly, your BIOS may be too old and need an update, especially if a small 2GB drive is detected correctly.
