Amilo Pi 2512 will not boot up

My Pi will not boot up properly, it boots as far as the Fujitsu welcome screen then stops until I press F12 and select the hard drive manually.

I'd do a Physical Hardware check:
Hard Disk Drive
CMOS Battery

If any of those things became loose (Keyboard, RAM), that could cause the Computer to hang.
If the HDD has failed on you, it to could cause this ~hang~
A dead CMOS Battery will loose all the configurations that are on the BIOS.
But, I think it's a bit soon though given that the Battery should last 'round 10 Years though.

If by uninstalling some Driver has left you with out a working Copy of your OS, because it like broke something.
Then your only option might be to try and get into Safe Mode and Grab what ever you can and do a clean install.
If your lucky enough to still have your Rescue Partition, the now might be a good time to use it (i.e. F4 at startup instead of F8).
If not then you'll have to do a Clean Install of your OS again. (i.e. Reformat it).

Just note that if you ~do~ have a Rescue Partition you DO NOT want to reformat that Drive, as you'll wipe the entire Drive.
That's what happened to me, thankfully I did that after I turned my PI2550 on for the first time so Fujitsu-Siemens (at the time), had to send me the Physical Discs per Post.
Which begs the question why couldn't they have just packaged those Disks in the first place?
