Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Usually the HDD is set on IDE #0.
The PXE error appears if the notebook tries to boot up from the LAN but the cable is not connected or there is no possibility for LAN booting.
In my opinion there is something wrong with the HDD or the BIOS cannot recognize the HDD correctly. I would recommend checking the HDD pins. Furthermore you should change the booting order in the BIOS.

SOURCE: IDE #0 ERROR
It sounds like there is a hard-drive problem. To help you further I would need your complete laptop model number. If your hard drive is indeed dead, most likely it's not too difficult to replace and a 2.5" hard drive is not that expensive.
Hope this Helps

IDE #0 is where your hard drive connects to your computer's motherboard. You may be able to connect your hard drive to IDE#1 or you will have to have your motherboard replaced.
