    i am working on a computer that appeared to of had a hard drive failure. i was getting the errors
    PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable
    PXE-MOF Exiting intel boot agen

    I saw in some of the other forums similar issues. i checked all the cables, bought a new hard drive (sata), and disabled the network boot option in bios. now when i try to start the computer up it states no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

    I have a boot disk in the dvd rom and it still doesnt find it. the bios does show the dvd rom, dvd burner, and the hard drive.

    if this was a hard drive issue i would have thought the new hard drive would solve the problem and the boot disk would be found. i am at a loss. any ideas?
