    When i boot up my pc i get a error saying "disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter". Checked the BIOS, and the HDD isn't listed there. Checked all the cables they are fine. Placed that HDD in another pc and it works fine.
    Placed a different HDD in my pc and it booted fine.
    So the HDD works with other computers, and my pc works with other HDD, but the two together just won't work.
    I don't know what the problem might be, maybe some compatibility issues?
    Anyone has any ideas?

    OK, no one [other than you] has any idea what we are working on; post ALL of your exact system specs. IE exact mb installed, exact cpu installed, exact pw supply installed, etc, etc. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, then post the exact make and model #. If there is a service tag #, then post that as well.
