Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
I`v installed a new 60gig hitachi harddrive on my old T23 and all i can get is a the same PXE-E61:media test failure
I have changed the boot to cd rom first,and it doesn`t change anything.
i have reset the bios to default.
And still nothing but the same screen.
The hard drive is a HTS721060G9AT00 and on the bios it has a -(PM) after it.
I am trying to use windows xp pro.And yes it is a legal version!!!
The laptop works fine with the old harddrive in it.(the old harddrive crashes every now and then.That`s why i am swaping it out.
You have to make sure the HD is properly formated and install the XP into it... you may want to read below link which i think might be helpful to solve you problem...

When the unit gives the booting from PXE, it means that the hard drive is not being seen. First, check that the jumpers on the drive are set for master.
According to Hitachi's website, the drive is set as Master, no jumpers from the factory.
Setting 1—Device 0 (Master) (no jumper is used)
Setting 2—Device 1 (Slave)
Setting 3—Cable Select
Setting 4—Do not attach a jumper here
Setting 5—Do not attach a jumper here
The default setting at shipment is Setting 1 (no jumper)
If the drive is set correctly, I would suspect that there is something wrong with the drive.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
