I took out 2 harddrives, reformatted, took out partition on small one, and put both back in. I made the newer, larger one the master this time, and the older smaller one the slave. When it starts up, it says PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check the cable. I have checked the interface cables, even borrowing the cable from the CD Rom, but got the same results. On the Bios, it shows both hard drives, CD Rom, and 3 l/4" diskette detected. Thanks for any suggestions.
