1. You didn't specify if you are installing Windows XP or which operating system.
I assume that you want to install Windows XP. I am not sure as to the age of this unit and if it is compatible with the above mentioned OS.
2. If you have a valid key then any Windows XP Operating disk will boot your PC unit provided you have allow the device in the bios to boot from it.
3. You will need to select the CD/dvd device to be enabled for the pc to see the boot disk. Usually selecting F12 or F1 will allow you into the BIOS setup for this.

You will need to ask your friend for the user manual to follow the bios setup procedure. I don't think there is a user manual for this model online anymore.

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

What you are describing is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back in place sometimes this will restart the hard drive. If this fails have it tested.

I can not get my laptop to start up. When it turns on it reads PXE-E61: Media test failure check media cable PXE-MoF:exiting PXE ROM Operating System not found. Any ideas on what is wrong?


hi lawson1377,

it seems it can't find a bootable device in your laptop therefore trying to boot from network.

Get in the BIOS an see if the harddrive is listed and to see if the boot order is correct.

good luck.

Media test faiture, check cable error message ,


The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

Sounds like it is trying to boot from network drive. Have you changed the bios boot order. If so, change it back to boot from hard drive first.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
