Default Unplugged hard drive now doesn't work!!!HELP

I have a SATA hard drive. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in and now os won't load. It only gets as far as the device listing screen and says-

"Verifying DMI Pool Data ............................
Boot from CD :

NVIDIA Boot Agent 249.0542

CLIENT MAC ADDR

DHCP............."



then nothing.
When I press escape it says

"PXE-EAO: Network canceled by keystroke
PXE-MOF: EXITING NVIDIA Boot Agent.
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER."



When I unplugged it from the cpu there were four places that the wire would go to but I'm not sure if it matters which to plug it back into.
Someone please help if you have the time.

What? I'm assuming you mean you have 4 SATA ports on your motherboard. It shouldn't matter which one you plug it into. Did you unplug it while it was running?

Possibly. I don't really remember. If so what is the outcome?

Go into your bios and make sure the Hard drive is detected. Then go into to boot priority and make sure HDD is first and disable network boot or pxe boot whatever is listed in bios

Sounds like you got a bad hard drive or possible motherboard. Put the harddrive in another computer to see if it gets detected.
