This sounds like you need to repair the boot sector. this usually happens when a hard disks boot sector becomes corrupt or damaged. to fix this you must use the windows install disk to install recovery console. put the disk in the CDROM drive, reboot, (you may need to press F2 upon bootup to enter setup and choose to boot from the CDROM instead of HDD) once computer is configured to boot to the CD drive reboot and choose "repair" when prompted by the cd. once the repair prompt is up you must run the 'fixmbr' command which will copy boot files back to your computer. hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions.

Boot device not found, States install an operating system on your hard disk


Sounds like the hard drive has been formatted, and there is no operating system. You will need a installation disc for an operating system to get past this message. As it is now, your computer will not boot from the hard drive.

Find a boot device?


You need to obtain a recovery CD for your operating system. It will give you some recovery options which may work. If not you will probably have to reload the operating system. You might be lucky and there is a hidden recovery partition to set the machine back to factory state. Google your machine for recovery partition option.

You may try to insert the original operating system disc and fixing the boot process. Some computers do not offer an operating disc, thus you may have to use the Restore function. When booting, hit the F8 key and start up in the safe mode. Search for the Restore function and go from there. The problem is you did not state what version of Windows your using and it is difficult to navigate without that information.

HI there,
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.

The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.

Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!

The message you are seeing is your system trying to boot off of a network source. The boot device order has either been changed in your BIOS or the system is not seeing the hard drive with your operating system on it and is not able to boot from it.
