"operating system not found"

Yes Bill, the HD had 3 os's on it along with a boot manager...
the HD is good, I ran a DFT test from a Floppy.... I tried the original HD 4.6gig
and still got the same error Operating System not found...
It just seems like the system is not booting the HD I'm no expert on
thinkpads, but this is wierd..
I even tried installing the HD from the unltrabay.. still read No OS...
even thought I booted my WSeB cd from the cd tray..
the HD.. I don't really know what I did, but I got to my boot manager...
unfortunatly that was ther only good point..
thanks for all the help..
