Hello.

The most common cause for this message is a bad hard disk drive.

Hope this helps.

It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

Tried the same thing and got the same result using the motion computing DVD/CD external reader/burner.

Thanks.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).

Operating System Not Found


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem indicates a hard disk problem: either it is no longer recognized (most likely) or the partition / files are corrupted.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Operating system not found


That error message just indicates that the syswtem tried to do a network boot and couldn't since it did not detect an Ethernet cable connected to the port. Apparently your hard disk has died and needs to be replaced or your BIOS settings have changed and your hard disk is no longer in the boot order. Check your BIOS settings to confirm.

this is a easy fix all you need is a windows xp installation disk.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of the cd option.if you need help with the xp cd installation i can write up a guide for you.also is the first harddrive new or came with the comp.if it is a new harddrive it might not have a operating system on it.email me if you have anymore qeustions or you want the guide.i can even make a video for you but it probably won't be good quality.

Boot up problem


NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken

Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.

And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

Boot


sounds like hard disk faliure, suggest getting a new hard disk or perhaps attempt a system reinstall. Its not the fan but the hard disk.

Toshiba satellite 1115-S103 I can't boot up


It seems like your computer is booting from the network. This means that it is not detecting the Hard Drive. This error shows up when the hard drive is already busted or is not working anymore. You'll need to call toshiba for repairs or just get a brand new hard drive and install it yourself. It's pretty simple.
