The bios cannot correctly determine the configuration of your disk drive. This happens when.... its not there, its broken, bios setting for it are wrong - try the auto setting, cables are wrong or faulty or jumper setting are wrong.

Try the disk in a different PC to checks its okay.

Check, double check and triple check ALL jumper setting - both on that drive and anything on the same cable. One should be set to master (or master/slave present) the other to slave if there are 2 drives on the cable.

Put bios detection settings to auto.

Try different cables. Make sure the cables are correct for the drive(s).
