IMO, its either a HW issue (bad hdd, mem or ribbon cable). Or the hard drive has a corrupted partition table (or is not detected with appropriate physical values). Also, if that drive is on a SATA, SCSI or RAID controller, it could be a driver issue.
Try disconnecting all other HDDs from your system (if any other). And try connecting the HDD to a different channel. I would also suggest grabbing a copy of MemTest86+ to make sure you're not having memory issues.
