    Question dualbooting boot problem? pxe-e61

    i am installing osx86 with iatkos v7 onto my toshiba satellite.
    i am using easy bcd to make use the vista bootloader.
    i'm having a problem though. when i turn on my computer, i get this screen it says:
    For realtek RTL8100E/8101E Fast ethernet netwrok adapter v1.02 (060510)
    PXE-E61: media test failure, check cable
    PXE-M0F: exiting pxe rom

    Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)

    My cables are all fine, because i can fix this by putting in my vista cd and running startup repair.
    how can i fix this? my bios has hard drive first, then i think cd for boot order
    are there some certain options i need to choose when installing iatkos? or should i try (again, i couldnt do it earlier) to use chameleo v2 from the iatkos install?

    thanks so much. i hope this isnt a stupid question.

    my laptop's specs:
    toshiba satellite a135
    cpu: intel dualcore pentium T2080 @ q.73 ghz
    mem: 1 gb, ddr2
    graphics: intel gma 950

    Hi there,
    If it is then you would not ask? LOL. People say that there is no stupid question. "how can i fix this", now I am confused, if you refer to that message then there is nothing wrong, not even your cable. You have your BIOS LAN boot ROM enable. So it goes down the order list of your hard disk, CD, etc...and if it could not find anything to boot from then your last device is LAN ROM and you don't have anything on the ROM so it made a guess saying thing went wrong with your cable. Just disable your LAN boot ROM (unless yours is on a network that has server image to boot from).
    Now, I think your problem is your Easy BCD somehow got wrong configuration and lost your MBR that the bootstrap from BIOS passing down to nowhere, hence could not invoke your OS's.
    Hope this help and you don't mind my jokes.
    Regards,

    Hi again,
    My mistake for not quite understand which state you are in. It has to do with your MBR and the bootstrap.
    If you already install OSX and easyBCD in Vista then I would check the configuration again.
    If you've just install Iatkos and can't boot then Yes, you should install an OSX boot loader during your installation (chameleon or whatever you prefer).
    Regards,
