Sounds to me like the machine is trying to boot from the network and complaining becuase you are not connected to a network via ethernet.

The reason for this is because the PC cannot find the hard-drive, it maybe be a fault IDE/Sata cable or a dead hard-drive please check the connection cables are replace hard-drive and reinstall Operating System. you migth be lucky...

Go into set-up and change the boot order to the hard drive you have your operating system on... then cd-rom. you may actually want to start with your cd-rom as it makes it easier when you are installing an operating system.

SOURCE: PXE-E61 : Media test failure,

You gotta a bad hard drive and it's not recognized when the computer is powered up. The ZE2000 uses good old 2.5", 9.5mm(height) ATA/IDE drives and the stock drives are of the slower variety (4200rpm rotation speed) - it's probably easy enough that anyone can get a new one (and a faster one of 5400rpm or 7200rpm) and replace it within a minute or two. Best source for these things is by mail: buy 'em on Amazon or eBay and in general, don't pay over 50 cents per gigabyte or you'll look like a tourist.

HP puts out its service manual online, so I'll just pass along the link (this may or may not be for your exact model, but for hard drive replacement, it's all the same): http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00442578.pdf

HDD replacement is page 110, I believe. Removing and installing a hard drive should take no more than 120 seconds.

Of course, you'll have the load Windows after the installation, and that'll take roughly 60-90 minutes.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
