I have thrice now wiped the entire disk and re-installed, including physically zero-ing out the first 512 bytes (which I understand to be the MBR) so I would've expected the re-installs to deal with that.
But happy to give this a go tonight when I get home.

Sounds like the MBR is corrupt. From your live CD use the install-mbr
program to reinstate it.
You'll *probably* need to say,
if there's only one hard disc present.
