I have an IBM T40.  I have tried to boot it from three separate HDDs.  In EACH case, I get a screen that includes this message:  "PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable."

It then says "Operating System Not Found"

I get the EXACT same message when I remove the HDD!

Two of the three HDD's I tried are bootable.

I went into teh BIOS earlier and I think I messed up the boot order.  I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose the problem and, presumably, reconfigure BIOS.

Thank you for your help.
