Sounds as if you messed up something else in the process. I gather that this is not a Mini you're having problems with? Make sure all the drive cables are properly seated. Does the BIOS show your disk(s) correctly?

Or you can enter the bios at startup and reset it to either last good setup, or default and see if that clears the error.
