Found a hard disk but can't find a boot sector on it to boot it
Explanation: The system found a hard disk to try to boot, but couldn't load the operating system from it because it could not find a boot sector on it.
Diagnosis: The most common cause of this problem is trying to boot a new hard disk before partitioning and formatting it. Getting this message on an existing system means that there is likely corruption of some sort in the key disk structures.
