Default boot record not found

Hey I am trying to finish up this system and slap an os on it, but the devices aren't being detected. Once it gets past System Logo and Bios Menu it goes through starting what devices the bios tells it and it gives me the following:
"
Searching for boot record from Floppy... Not Found
Searching for boot record from CD/DVD-0... Not Found
Boot Failure
Insert media in floppy and press key to continue
(Inserted Media) (Pressed key)
Searching for boot record from Floppy... Not Found
Searching for boot record from CD/DVD-0... Not Found
Boot Failure
Insert media in floppy and press key to continue
"
There is currently no Harddisk, because I know the Master Boot Record on it is corrupt and needs to be restored, But I have no working media devices to restore it.

But when I do attach the harddisk to the system, it boots into it, and then continues to a screen with a blinking cursor on the left top of the moniter.

System specs are:
PCChips M825LU V7.2 C
PMI 256 MB PC-266 RAM
Onboad ProSavage8 32mb(shared)
AMD Duron 1.4 Ghz
NEC Floppy Drive
40x CD-ROM
Rhycom 450W P4 Power Supply

I recently posted this at Hardware zone , just trying here too.
