Your machine does not find a valid operating system. This can mean your system is corrupted or a hard drive or cable failure. Start up from your system installation disk by inserting the disk and restarting while holding down the "C" key till the Apple icon appears. Go to the second screen pull down menu to Utilities > Disk Utilities. If it sees your hard drive see if it can be repaired, If not you will need to check your connections and/or replace the hard drive and install a new system.

I believe that you are having trouble with the hard drive. Im not positive as to what it means but I would ask your uncle about it.

Hope this helps,
