I have a hunch that for some reason the computer is having trouble recognizing the HDD, or perhaps the HDD itself may be going south on ya.
First i would try reseating all your IDE cables and making sure you have a good connection. Then run a diagnostics utility to rule out a malfunctioning HDD. You can download a free one from Samsung's website last time i checked.
