On A4000 (and presumably A3000, too), HdToolBox stores information about
the presence of disks in NVRAM, which is used later by AmigaOS when
booting (at least that's what they told me when I had a similar problem
with disappearing disks years ago...).

Can you try an explicit rescan in HdToolBox or so?
Does Linux see the disk?
