Well the disk you connect is blank hence the black screen you get. You need to install the Operating System (Windows, Linux) etc. first and a Windows CD/DVD will serve as a system disk. Put the CD or DVD in and start the computer. You will see a message "Hit any key to boot from the CD", hit a key and you will get into Windows configuration.
If you dont have a Windows CD or the original CD that came with the laptop, there is nothing much you can do. You will need to purchase one and go from there (unless you decide to switch to Linux, then you can download it for free and burn on a CD - Take a look at Ubuntu, it is a very "Windows user friendly" Linux distribution...

Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

PXE-E61:Media test failure, check cable PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent


If you get that error, it means that the laptop was trying to load Windows over a network - which is only used in Corporate setups.

Try going into setup (usually pressing Del, or one of the "F" keys as soon as it turns on), and checking if it's detecting your hard drive.

If it is detecting your hard drive, check the boot order - it's possible that the computer is set to try to turn on from a network before it tries to turn on from the hard drive inside - if that's the case, change the order.

Dead hard drive, replacement not working


The solution is that you simply cannot go out and buy a replacement HD. You have to buy TOSHIBA's replacement HD.

They make a 40, 80, 160 and 320 GB HD for Tecra MV2's etc.- Other HDs simply will not detect.
