PXE == Pre Execution Environment

Your computer can "boot" from various devices:
* floppy-disk
* CD-ROM
* USB memory stick
* DVD drive
* hard-drive
* over the network

If you don't have a "network boot server" somewhere on your network, you will get that "boot failed" message.

Enter BIOS SETUP mode, and disable "PXE boot over network", and make sure that the hard-drive and/or the CD/DVD drives are listed as candidates to be eligible boot-devices.

Media test failure ideacentre 320


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.
First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I am getting an error message PXE-E61. we have removed the hard drives and reinserted them, but it still won't reboot


You may need to change the boot sequence of your computer. Make your DVD drive as primary and HDD as your secondary or vise versa. USB or Boot from LAN should be disabled.

Hope this helps.. Thank you..

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

Prablon may loptop pxe-mof exiting broadcom pxe rom .broadcom undi pxe-2.1 v14.0.8


I think you hard drives failed. When the hard drive fails, the boot tries to find another way to boot up, so if the boot sequence lan is enabled, it will try to boot from the lan port (in your case broadcom pxe), when it can't boot from here either, it exits (exiting broadcom pxe). Replace your hard drive and re-install windows.

PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Operating system not found. how 2 solve or repair? help me...


The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

Boot Problems


Hi,

PXE means it will only boot while connected to the network,

You need to change the bois From network boot to Hard drive boot.

The system doesn't see a hard drive inside,

it thinks it is booting from the network only,

it boots to a server like this.

It is called a dumb terminal
