Cannot Bootload or upload to a ATtiny85 with Arduino Mega

I am currently attempting to upload code to a ATtiny 85 using an Arduino Mega, however, whenever I attempt to load the bootloader onto the microprocessor, the following error is returned:

avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000

I believe that I have set it up correctly, also with a capacitor between the reset pin and ground pin on the arduino. I believe that the Arduino can see the ATtiny 85, as before the error, data is sent and received. I have no clue as to what is causing the issue, i have tested differed breadboards and different ATtinys.

Any help would be appreciated

"Arduino as ISP"? did you put a capacitor on reset pin as instructed here

btw google found this

Yes, i selected the bootloader as Arduino as ISP and the capacitor in the right place
