That's not the weird part though. I tried running a Hiren's BootCD off of a flash drive, and it works when the hard drive is unplugged (I unplugged it because my bios was being stubborn and not letting me get into it for a while) but when I have the hardrive in, POST shows the flash drive having a "disk error" and I cannot boot to it. I would try booting to the flash drive and plugging in the hard drive after (it's standard SATA) but I don't want to risk killing myself. ^_^
