Question about Toshiba Portege R100 Tablet PC
When I turn on my Toshiba Portege laptap I get a message asking me to "Select Boot Device:
C : CD Rom
N : Network (LAN)
U: USB Floppy Drive
1 : Primary Hard Drive (Built In)
2 : Secondary Hard Drive (Select Bay)
P : PC Card Hard Drive
D : Default SYSTEM SETUP Device
Pres C, N, U, 1, 2, P, or D"
No matter which option I choose it says;
" Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 4.0.18
Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Insert system disk in drive.
Press any key when ready...."
Can you help with the problem, I don't have a clue what's wrong and I'm using my other laptop to deal with this.
NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken
Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.
And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

SOURCE: boot up problem
this is a easy fix all you need is a windows xp installation disk.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of the cd option.if you need help with the xp cd installation i can write up a guide for you.also is the first harddrive new or came with the comp.if it is a new harddrive it might not have a operating system on it.email me if you have anymore qeustions or you want the guide.i can even make a video for you but it probably won't be good quality.
