Default Prob when starting up an old machine...


I have this message at the start...

"PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable"
"PXE-M0F Exiting PXE"

When I go into the CMOS, the date is counting very fast... What could be the cause?

I had the same problem, but I think I got it fixed. I had 2 partitions on my HD on my HP Pavilion notebook. somehow, my first partition was deleted. It just said no os found, and went to PXE. I did factory restores, removed my HD, everything. finally figured it out, and fixed it with FDISK. just create a primary dos partition in the somehow empty space
