Either the hard dive with the OS is defective and should be replaced or the boot ROM is no good and needs to be replaced.

In IBM system X3550 M3 server pxe e61 media test failure check cable error is coming and when i mam trying to install OS Partition will not show. pls give me solution.


This sounds like you are asking two different questions. PXE booting would be the way you would begin installing or loading an operating system. "Media test failure" errors would indicate a lack of network connectivity on the network interface that you're trying to PXE boot from.

You go on to mention an OS partition not showing... So did you resolve the PXE media test failure issue?

Your question is unclear and unanswerable in it's current state. BE CLEAR, CONCISE AND SPECIFIC.

My sun microsystems server can not boot device , what should I do?


I am not sure what server you have and the OS you have, the configuration and how this relates to shoes. If the boot device isn't starting up, can you see it in the BIOS as a drive. That rules out a HD failure.

Acer aspire d257 pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable error


Your computer tries to "boot" (start-up) from several devices:
* floppy-disk (if installed)
* disk-drive (if not "dead"),
* CD/DVD optical device (if "bootable" media has been loaded)
* PXE --> Pre-Execution Environment -- checks if there is a connection between the network-adapter on your computer to a "boot-server" on your local network -- it can load Windows from that "boot-server".

The "media-test failure" indicates that there is no network-cable attached to your computer *AND* the other-end of the network-cable is *NOT* connected to the "boot-server". So, you can that "error" message.

Is your disk-drive "dead" ????

What is error 4? and how to solve.balance is stuckedup


What does particular error code mean "General failure". Particularly for "General failure", the SFTP server should provide you more details, that you will see next to "Error message from server". Unfortunately, SFTP server shipped with OpenSSH (or Sun SSH) does not. That is, why you see there just "Failure" (very useful).

Some situations when OpenSSH (Sun SSH) server issues this useless error message:

a. Renaming file to name of already existing file.

b. Creating directory that already exists.

c. Moving remote file to different filesystem (HDD).

d. Uploading file to full filesystem (HDD).

e. Exceeding user disk quota.


thank you

When i start the laptop it shows media test failure,check cable exiting pxe rom os not found


Your computer is configured to try to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD drive
* disk-drive
* network (via connecting to a "boot-server" on your local network)

So, "media test failure" means that no Ethernet cable is connected to the network-port on the computer. So, if you are trying to boot from a "boot-server" over the network, check that the Ethernet cable is connected, and check that the boot-server is processing boot-requests.

Thus, the PXE (Pre eXecution Environment) is exiting, because it cannot boot from the network -- no Operating System was accessible over the network.

So, enter BIOS SETUP, and disable the "network boot" option,
if no boot-server exists.

Also, put a boot-disk into the floppy-drive, or the CD/DVD drive,
or, most importantly, check that your disk-drive is working.

If your disk-drive is not getting power, or its "data" cable is not connected, or if the disk-drive has a problem, then Windows cannot be read from the disk, and so the computer tries an "alternate" boot-device.

My Hp probook 4510s cannot boot it gives error of PXE failure after startup screen it says media cable check error.


Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:

* floppy disk
* CD/DVD drive
* internal disk-drive
* USB memory-stick
* over the network, if it can find a "boot-server" on the local network.

So, the 'PXE failure' and 'check cable' errors occur either because there is no cable connected to the network-port, or because there is no "boot-server" on your network.

Enter BIOS setup, and check the "order" of possible boot-devices,
to ensure that the "network-boot" device is set to the _lowest_ priority.

What this could mean is that the computer *TRIED* to boot from the disk-drive, but *FAILED* to do so, i.e., you have a problem with the disk-drive in your computer. Ouch!

Hp proliant server dl380 g3. gettting PXE-E61:Media test failure, check cable how to fix it..


Your server tries to "boot" from several sources:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD
* disk-drive
* network (if you have a "boot-server" somewhere on your network)

So, if your computer FAILS to boot from the first 3 devices, above, it will try the 4th, namely via your network-adapter.
When your computer finds that its network-adapter is *NOT* connected via an Ethernet cable to a boot-server, it reports "check cable" and "test of the media has failed".

So, why did your server *NOT* boot from the 3rd device, namely your disk-drive? Solve that problem, and the 4th device (the "network-boot") will not be tried, and the error-messages will not appear.

When turning my laptop on i get a message media test failure


You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
