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

My pc says"boot failure,insert boot diskette in A"


If XP was not installed on the HD from your computer then the computer won't boot from it. Reinstall it.
The system may not see your HD. As you boot, go to the boot menu and see if the HD is listed. - If it's not, see if the HD is well connected to the motherboard. - If it is then re install XP.

Had a external hd pluged in and had shut the laptop up and later when I upened it back up to use it, it would not boot and said it had no bootable disk


remove the external hd before turning bakc the system on, it might be trying to boot up to the ext hard drive if the internal hard drive is not the primary boot device on your computer. go to the BIOS set up of your system then change the boot sequence make hdd as the primary boot device so you can use the ext hard drive even if after reboot.

Need floppy to boot in XP PRO on HD


Hi, if you can boot using xp cd then instead of going into recovery console you can elect to install xp. The cd will search for existing installations and offer to repair for you. If you are able to get this option it will not delete your programs or personal stuff. You will need your xp code and you may need to reactivate windows when finished. If it doesn't offer repair then f3 to exit so you don't overwrite your personal stuff.

IBM T30 Start-up HD options


Why do you what to boot up from the 2nd hard drive?
If you want to boot up with a different operating system from a 2nd drive, I suggest you set up a dual boot system with the other operating system on the 2nd drive.
When you boot up you will be given a menu and you can choose which operating system you want. There is a time delay and if you don't choose a system it will default to the first operating system on the list.

Windows won't boot after an OS upgrade


The board is probably good but I've seen this many times when folks try to upgrade old computers. The drivers included with XP aren't working on your machine. It's not working with W2K because when you formatted the HD with XP it removed the IBM label from the HD. You should use your recovery disks to restore the drive.

Hard Drive Prevents any other windows device from loading


Hi, Mark Here.
Yes the setup on the xp install puts drivers into memory, but being an older version of windows B4 sta was out it does not have drivers to support it.

You could go to Microsoft & search for a new version of setup install drivers that includes sta, & download to thumb.
Really typical Windows Failure (driver not available freeze up or blue screen).

H.D failure


Its definitely the Hard drive that might have crashed. You can try booting the system by using a windows CD and see if it boots. Secondly you can try using a different hard drive from some other laptop, if you know someone using this one. Or you have to purchase one. If you think of replacing it with a new one, I can assist you to replace it. Dont take it to a service center, they would charge you a good amount.
