    had the same problem with intel DP35DPM mobo i was using in a system I was building. Searched error message at Intel site and found this link: The problem turned out to be a bios setting that had the pc trying boot from the network if no other boot devices present. the missing cable reference is to the network cable. I disabled this option in the bios per Intel's recommendation and the problem went away.

    I have a hp nx9030 and I reset the bios to default and than I tried to do a hard drive self test. This is what is said, estimated test time: diagnostics not supported, Test status: no ide device. I'm not sure what that means hp support didn't have anything listed in their troubleshoot section. Now on the screen when I boot it up it says: Pxe - e61: media test failure check cable and Pxe - M0f: existing pxe rom. I have no idea what to do any help is appreciated.

In order to load the Operating system I request you to disable the SATA Native Mode in BIOS and then load the Operating system.

1. Please perform the below steps for the same:

a. Restart your computer.
b. When the F10 setup message appears in the lower left corner of the screen, press the F10 key.
c. Locate ‘System Configuration’ and then select ‘Device Configurations’.
d. Under ‘Device Configurations’, select ‘SATA Native Mode’ and disable the same.
e. Save the settings and exit.

Once the SATA Mode is disabled, please install the Operating System in the normal fashion using the Recovery CDs or the Operating System CDs that you have. Before installing the same, you need have the SATA Controller driver. Please follow the ’Installation Instructions’ in the SATA controller driver link given below.

2. Download the latest “Intel SATA AHCI Controller Driver” driver from the below mentioned link:

Upon installing the same, please get back into the BIOS and enable the SATA Native Mode.

I have the same problem and just now found the solution. The source of the problem, at least in my case, was in the BIOS setup. PXE boot to LAN was ENABLED. I set the selection to DISABLE. The error message on POST is gone and everything is normal. Hope you have the same luck I had.
Let me know, OK.

SOURCE: have acer 5315 will not boot giving PXE-E61 an

OK, here is the deal with your system.....It looks like you have had a hard drive failure and the computer is trying to boot from a network drive or NIC card. That is what the PXE is, in the BIOS the computer is peobably set to boot from a network if the hard drive is not found hence the PXE code.
Replace the hard drive and get yourself a EIDE / SATA to usb adapter so that you can attach the old hard drive to the adapter and attempt to get some of your personal files off of it. The hard drive may allow itself to run as an external so you can access it....maybe not, but worth a try. The only other reason I know of for the code would be if there was no operating system to be found, then it would throw the same code.

When i ask to solve it wont let me

If it is not accessible (grayed out) then the context is inappropriate. The reason could be the misuse of the verb solve. A lot of people confuse calculate with solve.

Errors PXE-E61 and PXE-M0F

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Im having an error when trying to turn on my lenovo. The error codes are PXE-E61 and PXE-M0F. Then it says missing operating system. It wont do anything after that. Can you please assist me with this....

pxe-e61 (media test failure, check cable) and pxe-m0f (exiting pxe rom), your laptop is not detecting your hard drive so it cannot boot. Try this, remove anything that it is attached to your laptop (external drive, external camera or the likes) and try rebooting. If that does not work you have to open your hard disk drive bay located at the back of your laptop and carefully remove it then place it back again make sure that the screws are complete and are not loose.
Reply if pulling out your hard drive did'nt work.

The system is not finding any bootable media (Hard Drive) and is attempting to boot via the network card (PXE Boot) the error message is saying that there is not PXE network to boot from and it is exiting the process.
Generally, this is caused by a hard Drive failure. Reseat the drive and or drive connections and see if the system will find the hard drive.
Generally, a Hard drive failure
