I connect an external ATAPI CD-ROM drive to my A1200 when required via an externally mounted socket which gives access to the internal 4-way IDE buffered interface. That error message comes up when I boot the Amiga without the CD-ROM drive connected, because it cannot be detected whilst my configuration always expects to see it. If I just cancel the requester, then everything works okay (but without the CD-ROM, obviously).

That message will appear if your CD-ROM drive is not connected or powered up properly, but I'm not sure why it should appear when you reboot if it does not appear when you first power up.
