PXE -E61 Media test failure

Hi guys I recently installed a new Dual layer dvd drive on the same IDE cable as my HDD. I had the exact same setup with another computer and its fine but the only different is that it is not a dual layer. Both the drives are set as masters, will this cause a problem? the message i keep getting on boot up is:PXE -E61 media test failure, check cable.
PXE - MOF exiting PXE ROM
Disk boot failure.
I have even change the cable but makes no different.

Yes you can not have both set as master on the same cable

Hi bremner, should the rom be on slave or cable select? Weird but my other computer is working fine with both drives as masters on the same ide cable.

One more item i forgot to mention, In BIOS there are no drives listed even the boot sequence is there.

It should be on slave. The BIOS is probably not reporting the drives because of them both being master.
