since it refers to bios, i would remove AC and bios battery from the pc for a minute - then reconnect and test
Can you tell where and when you are getting this error?

Doing a little research on the error message turns up an interesting issue:  All the sites and forums that discuss this error are in Russian.  What kind of motherboard is in the afflicted system?

The message shows up after bios, apparently it is a hard drive failure because hdd is not being recognized in bios. And this laptop is from europe so all search results do come back in russian.
I was just trying to see if anybody knows an exact root of this problem except general hard drive failure. Thanks to all of you!
