  I don't know about your particular model but some of the Grids had an
EPROM in them that you could boot from. As you would expect they have very
few files on them. If the CMOs lost it's settings you could still boot from
the EPROM and you would only see it's few files and you couldn't see any of
the files on the hard drive. It sounds like this might be your situation.
On mine the EPROM was located on the left just above the keyboard.
