go to the BIOS setup, & change the disk controller setting from AHCI to IDE.

If you boot into the BIOS and you can't see the hard drive:
1. the hard drive is disconnected (data cable or power cable)
2. the power supply has partially failed and is not powering the hard drive
3. the motherboard hard drive controller has failed
4. the hard drive has failed
