I am installing Windows 7 on an old machine. I can not even get it to boot. I get this error message:
CDBOOT: Cannot boot from CD - Code: 5 Boot Failure from Previous Device.. Boot Failure from Previous Device.. Broadcom UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082) v1.0.3 Copyright (C) 2000-2002 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 2007-2000 Intel Corporation All rights reseved. PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Boot Failure Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device Press any key when ready
PC is functional, at the moment it runs Windows XP. DVD drive is functional, and while XP is booted, it can read Windows 7 installation DVD and run installation. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta did not find any problems with the machine.
