It sounds like the BIOS doesn't detect the hard disk?
Could you check the hard disk cables and power cables to make sure they are well connected (on motherboard
and hard disk side) ?

If this still not works, then go to BIOS to see the CMOS setting for the hard disk is correct or not.

The worse case is pulling out the hard disk and put into some other PC to test the hard disk is ok or not.

first, check if the jumper settings are correct : disk set to master on IDE 0, cd drive preferabley on anothercable set to master or slave, if on the same cable, use slave setting
