The PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable error is caused by either an incorrect CMOS setting or a bad hdd.
The BIOS layout changes from one manufacturer to another, so I can't just tell you to look in the Standard CMOS Features and be sure that you will find it in your BIOS. But there will be a section which which does show the hdd and the manufacturer, this what you need to find to see if your hdd is being seen there.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
07/09/17 I have had a free account with Photobucket for over a decade which I've used to host images in my canned speeches. A little over two weeks ago Photobucket changed the their Term of Service. This resulted in those with a free account being required to upgrade to their most expensive account ($399. per year) in order to be able to post third party images hosted at their website. All of my images have been restricted and or deleted. I apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused.
