SOURCE: Cd rom

Is this a new CD-ROM? Usually if the BIOS cannot see the drive it's a problem with the jumper setting on the back of the drive. Try setting the jumper to cable select. Let me know if that helps.

Hi, the error code that you have is a known issue from Microsoft that needs a registry tweaks. Error code means "Your registry might be corrupted (code 19)."

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.

SOURCE: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable on compaq presario 2100

A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.

3. Check in Sysem setup/BIOS and see it the drive is getting detected. in case the drive is not getting detected over there it is a possibility that the data cable that connects the drive to the main board might be loose. if that is the case we need to go into more detailed troubleshooting. please let me know if above steps fix the issue else will provide further steps.

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Make sure the BIOS is fully updated from the HP website. Most DL3-series servers supported booting from an external USB cd, try F10 or F12 at boot in order to bring up a boot menu.
