I have a hardisk installed windows 7 ultimate. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 by pen drive. After sometime it hanged. After waiting sometime, I press the key of reboot. After that one messege appeared "no boot device found". Then I went to my BIOS settings there I could not find my hardisk.

    Are you able to unplug the drive from the motherboard and plug it back in? If the BIOS doesn't see it this might be a problem with your drive. – Mark Paskal Oct 15 '12 at 7:20

Hardware problem. This one has nothing to do with Ubuntu. Make sure your hardware works; is the disk broken?

    How do you know this? An if not, then why doesn't your BIOS detect it? – January Oct 15 '12 at 6:01
  • after installation of ubuntu it is not shown on any computer – user146207 Oct 15 '12 at 6:07

    Software can break many things, but not the fact whether the disk is recognized by BIOS. – January Oct 15 '12 at 7:13
