How can I fix a hard drive that no longer appears in the BIOS or in Windows?

I a have Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2727 with a Western Digital hard drive.

HDD: WD1600BEVT – 22zct0
Parameters: LBA 312581808
Capacity: 160 GB

The hard drive does not appear in BIOS or Windows environment.

I was working on another faulty HDD using Hiren’s utility (disk edit) and by mistake deleted the first sectors of the laptop original hard drive. When I returned to open the laptop, there was no response.

I think the HDD no longer has ID information. So the laptop BIOS can not see the HDD, neither Windows or the Utility programs.

How can I fix this?
