Default Disk boot failure

i just this minute disconnected my hd and then reconnected it agian (dont bother to ask why) but when i switched on my pc i got the message saying "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER"

so i stuck in my vista disk but when i got to the part where you choose which partition to install vista on my hd wasnt there,

do i need a new hd or are there some drivers i can get???

my hd is a Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 10 160GB
