I would suspect you need a specialist application to sort this, thing is,
when you plug in a disk drive, the system uses information from the first
sector to identify the drive and its size.

No, this information is not stored in the first sector nor anywhere else in the storage area. It is retrieved using a drive identification command, not a sector read command.

You get a similar problem when you zero out an entire hard disk

No, it is a completely different problem. It destroys partition tables, partitions and filesystems, not drive identification.

and there the solution is to manually enter into the bios the hard drive.

I don't see what you mean exactly, but that won't solve either problem.
