I just got a laptop from eBay - with no operating system installed. No software included. I have an XP CD and have tried resetting the BIOS to read from the CDROM first, with no luck. I pulled the hard drive out and all of the pins were intact and straight. I pulled the CDROM drive out and they were all intact and straight.

It is an HP Omnibook 6100. Here is my error message:

Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 4.0.10
Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation

Intel Base-Code, PXE-2.1 (build 083)
Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Operating System not found

Is there anything I can do to get the Windows XP to load? I am not sure if this means the HD is bad, or the CDROM is bad? If anyone can help, I am up for suggestions!
