Hello there!
My laptop died, so..
I'm trying to install a new HD ( PATA WD Scorpio Blue ) on my Acer Aspire  5633 laptop, and install Windows XP as well.
After placing the hd, and switching on - I get this message:
PXE - E61 media test failure, chack cable
exiting broadcon
operating system not found. ( I put in a windowsxp cd as well )
