hi

you should say when you get the message exactly (before or after bootloader) and if its after the bootloader (e.g. grub) how your grub.conf looks like.

but the message looks like its the one from the bios when it looks on the bootsector of the hd and doesnt find a bootloader or operating system to boot - so i guess you have to setup grub correctly
