Does the drive appear at all in the bios setup? How large is the drive? What is the bios version number?

Depending on the age of the BIOS in question, a large hard drive can hang the BIOS right after the detection phase. If you supply details of the hard disk size, and the BIOS dates, we could probably make a better guess.
