Question about Compaq Presario 2100 Series: 1170B01-90 (COMPAQPRESARIO2100SERIES) CD-ROM Drive
I have a presario 2100. when boot I get the following:
Argon PXE Boot Agent v2.01 2002
PXE -E61 media test failure check cable
and does not boot. I have used Hirens 9.5 and
the c drive has 0 blocks. I also used Super Winpe UBCD PRO and the C drive has 0 blocks.
what is up with that!
Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* USB memory-stick
* over a network, via PXE (Pre eXecution Environment)
If you have a network-cable connected to the Ethernet port on the computer, with the other end connected to a "boot-server", then the Operating System can be loaded over this network-connection.
But, if you get "media test failure" and "check cable", then the network-cable for PXE is either non-working or not-present.
Any disk-drive that shows "ZERO" blocks is very probably a DEAD disk-drive. Replace it.

Your disk-drive has failed.
So, your computer tried to boot itself over the Ethernet network,
by "broadcasting" a request for booting. When either the network-cable was _NOT_ connected, or when _NO_ computer responded to the "broadcast" message, you get "PXE: media failure".
Take your computer to a qualified technician,
to remove the "dead" disk-drive,
to replace the disk-drive,
and to reinstall Windows.
