1 512 ddr400 3200 ram,
1 samsung 80g Hd jumpers set to master,

1 antec 430 watt Power supply 24 pin
1 Geforce 6600 pcie vid card 256m
1 DFI nf4x motherboard
1 generic case

put all the pieces together as well as a CDrom i had laying around.

After booting it up and it finally detecting my harddrive i get the cdrom working and i put in my win2k pro cd and start it up and i encounter the following problem

pxe-e61 media test failure. check cable
pxe- mof exiting nvidia boot agent
BOOT DISK FAILURE, ENTER SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.

Hi Bazzy,

Where on the ribbon cable do you have the master set (ie: middle of the cable or end of the cable)?

If you have the Hard drive set to master on IDE #1, then you must have it on the end of the ribbon cable....and, the CDRom if on the same ribbon cable must be set to slave and be on the middle connector or the ribbon cable.

I would double check that first to make sure the slave drive is not set to cable select (as most come from the factory that way)

Addendum: Boot order should be:

CDRom
Floppy
Hard Drive
and, don't forget to save before you exit.
