Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, i have a gateway 6518GZ notebook. i am attempting to reinstall windows xp onto a new hard drive that i bought off of ebay. i get...
PXE-E61: media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: exiting broadcom PXE ROM
Operating system not found
i was under the impression that i would just be able to put the hard drive in and reinstall windows but it isnt happening that way?
can anyone help me?
in really easy instructions? i know a little but not a ton...
Broadcom is a maker of Network cards and PXE is a generic name for Network Boot Bios .. have you set your Laptop to boot from a network before CD ?? (go into BIOS @ power on and set CD first, hard disk second)
If not, then it can't see any other bootable device so ends up trying the network as a 'last resort' ...
