Hi Neils

My guess is this is the same thing that happened with my sata dvd drive a 
while back

Try the following

open a terminal window
sudo modprobe piix
sudo update initramfs

if you can now see your hdd then edit your /etc/modules file and add a line 
reading "piix" without the quotes of course
