Chance are the hard drive is DOA . Theyre fairly fragile and shipping kills more than a few .
But try formatting that drive in another computer .
Or try another hard drive in that computer

The hard drive can be DOA and be seen by BIOS .
If its a 7200.11 it my be fixable with an upgrade of the firmware . 7200.11's die quickly or are doa .
