DELL Dimension 2400 turns on, cant find HDD.

Dell Dimension 2400 desktop

Specs: Windows Server 2008 Standard, Pentium 4 [2.8GHZ]/1.2GB DDR RAM
I turn on my Dell Dimension 2400, It goes to the Dell Screen, the bar fills up, and it stays there for at least 2 minutes. Then it goes on to say "cannot find primary disk 1" "F1 to retry, F2 to setup". I hit F1 and what do you know... It boots up. I recently replaced the hard drive with another one of the same size of an unknown age. 40GB. I am pretty sure this is BIOS related, but I would appreciate if someone shed some light on the subject for me.
