The PXE-E61 error is caused by either a faulty disk controller or most likely a faulty hard disk. Because the Lenovo is new I suggest you return it to the supplier to get it fixed under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself because you can void your warranty.

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Not Starting


This is the PXE boot for the factory, or a tech to shoot windows into it. As the machine starts, press the key that will get you into the BIOS to make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. If the computer then comes up with "No Operating System Found" you will need to get it reloaded. You get a windows cd, go back into the BIOS, set the cd drive as first, then save and restart. Press any key when prompted, and follow instructions.

ACER 5315 IS DEAD ON BOOT UP IT DISLAYS PXE-E61:media test failure,chk cable PXE-MOF:EXITING BROADCOM PXE ROM


Sounds like it is trying to boot from network drive. Have you changed the bios boot order. If so, change it back to boot from hard drive first.

New hard drive, getting PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable


Broadcom is a maker of Network cards and PXE is a generic name for Network Boot Bios .. have you set your Laptop to boot from a network before CD ?? (go into BIOS @ power on and set CD first, hard disk second)

If not, then it can't see any other bootable device so ends up trying the network as a 'last resort' ...

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


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.
