I unplugged my server to change some of the CAT 5 cables in our office. I just plugged everything back in and i get a message saying:

"Primary drive 0 not found
Primary drive 1 not found
Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility"

When i hit F1, it just goes back to that message. If i hit F2, it takes me to the setup. Once thing i noticed, when i go to Boot Sequence, one of the options is "Hard Disk Drive (not installed)". Does that mean my hard drive is wiped? Is my mother board bad? I was getting a message saying "Keyboard error" right before the message i mentioned above. I have some data I REALLY need off the hard drive. Any ideas/suggestions?
