Here's the background:
1# Installed W7/VMWare, left it running all night but had forgotten to turn off sleep etc.
2# No response trying to wake it so restart.
3# BIOS says it's corrupted or along those lines, booted into BIOS and reset to factory defaults, then BIOS says boot hard drive is not found but it's there in the BIOS menu. Also lost my W7 install, Vista and legacy were OK.
4# Repaired the drive with W7 disk, auto style and everything works now and the HDD is recognized when inside windows but I still get the BIOS HDD missing error on boot-up.
