ibm aptiva cant recognize hard drive

    i know this is pretty outdated, but i was wondering if anyone had any
    advice.

    I recently received an ibm aptiva 2153 E3U machine, but when i started
    it up it was frozen. I managed to make a boot disk for it and boot the
    system past the start up screen, but when i exit the boot disk to DOS,
    it will not recognize my hard drive. It does however recognize the CD
    drive, but this is not helpful since it has nowhere to transfer backup
    files. I am a computer novice to this point, so if anyone has any
    suggestions i would very much appreciate it.

    Thanks
