    make sure any hard disks drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct. this may involve irunning a manufacturer supplied diagnostic or setup program

    when the system boots up look for something that says press xx to enter "setup" or "BIOS", go in and see if the HDD is detected, its possible that its dead and this is why your getting the error.

    Or its a sata drive and you need to load the sata drivers for it, this is done at the start of the install where it says press F6 to load additional drivers
