Sounds like a disk issue. It kind find the OS so it's then trying to PXE boot (boot from the network). Have you changed the boot order recently? or do you have a USB key connected to your server? are you able to connect to the management interface (hp ilo, dell drac) to see if you had any raid or other hardware issues?

SOURCE: when i power on HP prolliant ml 110g6 server it gives following errors

Shut the computer OFF and open the case. Check to be sure that the power cables AND the data cables that come from the power supply and motherboard (or IDE controller expansion card) and go to the HD / Optical / Floppy drives are all fully seated into their respective connection points. Some data cables (SATA types in particular) for HD and optical drives are easily dislodged from the jacks on the drive and controller. Make sure you don't disrupt any of them while checking. This may be a good time to vac / blow any accumulated dust out of the case. Make sure the power supply ventilation slots and fan are not clogged with dust and dirt. The same holds true for any other fan and heat sink on CPU, video processor, MoBo chipsets, etc. Dust will cause interfere with cooling and cause these components to run hot. Heat will cause erratic operation.

If your drives are controlled by an expansion card (ie: not from the motherboard itself), you may wish to remove and re-seat the card in the motherboard slot. This helps to re-establish good continuity between the slot and the card contacts.

When satisfied that the cables and expansion cards are connected properly, replace the cover and power up. Enter the BIOS setup page and make sure that all of the drives are listed. Make sure that the your boot drive appears in the list of drives your computer will seek at boot time. As long as the drives in the boot order do not have bootable media or sectors, the computer should eventually check your boot drive. Of course, if you set the boot drive as the first bootable device,the boot time will be reduced.

If you can't boot your normal boot drive, you should obtain a bootable image and place it on media that matches a bootable drive on your computer (USB, Floppy, CD or DVD). You can download boot images for Windows / DOS / etc. here free of charge.

Once you have booted from one of these images, you can proceed to test and optimally copy data from a drive the will no longer boot. If you are unable to access the original boot drive, there may be a problem with the cable, power, controller or even the disk itself. Your ability to recover the data will depend on how much time & money you want to spend on doing so.

I hope this helps & good luck!

System disk or disc error


Seems that your notebook's hard disk either failed or system files are corrupt. Try re-installing the operating system. If this does not fix the problem, consider replacing your hard drive.

Laptop won'y start up has non-system disk or disk error


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


Hello Sir.

Please check that your cd or dvd drive does not contain any disks when attempting to boot.
This can sometimes cause boot problems. The other problem you may be experiencing is hard drive failure. This can be caused by the hard drive loosing its configuration from wear or failure. Perhaps you have an extra hard drive laying around you can test to see if you get same error.
Thanks And GOOD LUCK!

GETTING ON MY LAPTP: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable


This error message can be caused by a faulty connection to the hard drive or a faulty hard drive or a faulty disk controller.
Go into the BIOS configuration to see if it has detected the hard drive, if it is not detected that is why the laptop won't bootup.
To confirm or check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port (you may need assistance from a computer savy friend).
If this computer cannot see this as an external drive then it is faulty. If the computer can see this drive as an external drive and you can open the folders and files on the hard disk then the hard drive is OK and the fault is probably a faulty disk controller on the laptop. A faulty disk controller is part of the motherboard and the only fix is a replacement motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution and it may be better to put your money towards a new laptop.
