Hi,

The message would be expected since there is no hard drive. Partition Table refers to information about primary partitions and an extended partition a 64-byte data structure located in the same sector as the Master Boot Record inside the hard drive.

This might be of additional help.

Hope that this be of initial idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    The initially posted link details how to get an OS installed on an M34 which should also work for a CF-27. Additional insights maybe sourced from here.

Can a power interrupt during hard drive installation cause a "Boot manager missing" message?


You do not say what OS you were installing, and Windows limits what you can do with the hard drive during installation.
As you have found out, any power interruption during an installation will likely corrupt the process and make the system unbootable.

If you can restart the install at the very beginning that may work for you. However, I believe the simplest fix will be to use a live system bootable disk and erase the corrupted partition table on the drive then restart the install as if it were a brand new hard drive.

For that type of recovery I use gparted, which can be downloaded for free from http://gparted.org/livecd.php
Gparted live can be used on CD, hard disk, USB, or even pxe boot. I would delete all the existing partitions that were created during the failed install, then restart the install from the very beginning as if it were a new disk.

Acer Netbook OS


if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).

It keeps saying that ntoskrn1.exe is missing


It is pretty much crashed....hard. Might want to reload the OS. Yes you can recover from that, but it is not worth the time and frustration to do it...Provided you can afford to lose whatever you had on the primary partition (C:\) drive. Let me know if you need other asst. It is a little complicated to explain. How many machines is this affecting? All of your E-Machines?

Os not found message appearing on the screen


Can you get in to your bios setup screen? If yes, then check that your hard drive is on the boot order list.

Your boot order list should be:

CD/DVD
hard drive
other (different bios have different options here)

If your boot order doesn't show your hard drive or the proper drive if you have more than one, change it to the proper drive.

Laptop


when u say setup screen I assume you mean the bios setup screen;which probably means ur hard drive is corrupted.
Make sure u have a os cd in drive and turn pc on to boot from disk,if you get a message in the black screen saying no operation system or no drive,turn off pc and remove hard drive ,check for dust and bent pins and replace making sure its seated(fitted)properly.the action of removing hd and refitting usually does the trick due to small particles of dust which act like conductors and can cause shorts.
if u dont see that message but have the option to install ;go ahead and install in next screen(blue setup)sys checks for exististing os ;if it finds one it asks to confirm install or repair,you can choose either one,both options take about the same time.though I always prefer to install clean (new) copy and delete partition,create new partition and format before install.
