That message means one of two things, one, it's trying to read your cd disk and it's bad, or two, it's booting off you hard disk and the hard disk does not have mbr record. Tell me about the history of the hard disk. Does the DH have a operating system on it? Can you boot the operating system on the HD? Did you run ms/dos fdisk on it to wipe out the old system and not do format with build boot record? What happens when you tell the bio's to boot from HD? Have you put some other bootable cdrom in cd drive and be able to boot from it. Like try to install ms/windows from the cd drive.
