Pxe e61 media test failure


Solution:
Put 'Hard Drive C:' before 'Network' in the boot order
(If the hard drive does not appear in the boot order, that's why the PXE network boot agents start)

Note : Check that the hard drive is seen in the BIOS setup
Cause:
PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network
It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located
In order to PXE boot press F12 at startup or configure the boot order in BIOS to display 'Network' before 'Hard Drive C:'
If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
That is caused by the hard drive is missing, unplugged or failed

Seen as removable


If you change the Boot Device startup order with the USB port as the first boot device then you can boot up with an USB hard drive or USB Flash device.

Seen as movable


If you change the Boot Device startup order with the USB port as the first boot device then you can boot up with an USB hard drive or USB Flash device.
If your hard drive is the first boot device then your USB hard drive will not boot up first.

Hi,

Start the computer and hit the F2 key until you get into the BIOS. When in the BIOS you can see in the Main/general page whether the hard drive is seen by the system. You will see HDD (hard drive) CD-ROM which is the optical disk drive.
If you see the hard drive the look for boot options in the tabs. When you get to boot options set the HDD as the first boot device, save the settings and exit the BIOS.

Hopefully the laptop will restart and boot from the hard drive, thus into Windows.

If the hard drive is not seen in the BIOS then the hard drive has failed and needs replacing.
If you have a BIOS password then start the computer hit F12 repeatedly until you see the boot option menu and choose the HDD.

Regards.

When I turn on my dell 1525 it says internal no bootable devices


The BIOS is not reading your hard drive. Take the drive out and reboot into BIOS. Make sure the SATA port is enabled. Turn the laptop off and reinstall the hard drive, make sure it seats all the way and is secure in its caddy. Reboot and see if it reads the drive.

Toshiba qosmio g15 hard drive #2 not showing up on explore


First ensure the drive is seen in the BIOS, if not seen there, it will not be seen in Windows.
If detected and Identified in BIOS, then see if the drive is seen as Drive 1 in Disk Management. CONTROL PANEL, ADMIN TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, DISK MANAGEMENT. If it is listed in Disk Management but not assigned a drive letter, then right click the Disk 1 and INITIALIZE the Drive, then format it (Note: any data on the drive will be lost when initializing a drive)
