IDR: Unable to attach to one of the drives

I want to test IDR for a remote server. I have two servers, media server (A) w. BackupExec 9.1 and another W2K3 server w Remote agent for Windows Servers (B).
I created bootable CD image and then created a bootable CD.
I also performed a Full backup of remote server B and updated the DR floppy.
Then a disaster striked. I lost machine B. (formatted the hard drive)
I booted machine B with created CD, pressed ENTER on the first screen, and pressed F2 when appeared in the bottom line. Later I chose to use Assisted restore using a remote media server.
I watched the Administration console on server A when machine B was ready to be restored. But the job failed withing 5 seconds saying: Unable to attach to one of the drives.
What is going on here? Can somebody suggest where the problem could be?
