Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Yes I have an Acer One model AO532h that when I turn it on I get the following message..."Check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intenl PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key". I have checked the hdd several times to make sure that there is a good connection and there was. I run this netbook with a dual boot os. Linux Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 Starter are the two. When I boot into Linux with my thumb drive I can see the hdd and the partitions on it. Heck the other day just for grins I installed another version of Linux on it but still could not get to it because again we are back to my question...where is my hdd? BIOS says there is not a hdd and even when I remove the hdd I get the very same message. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

The message is generated because the southbridge is no longer in communication with the hdd - the hard disk itself is failing - the electronics board to be exact. You will have to replace it.

No bootable device PXE-M0F


You need to disable booting from the device in the Bios. It will be under the Boot options menu. Uncheck it from the list of devices to boot from.

Hi,

I hope that you have the DVD Recovery Disks because your operating system is malfunctioning.

If you have the disks, you'll have to use an external CD/DVD Player.

In the alternative, you'll have to install XP/Vista/7. Please connect me if you need detailed instructions.

From working for Acer Repair centre this message means your hard drive or SSD drive depending on model has a fault with it and is broken the only way around this is to buy a new one or if its in warranty you will need to send it in for repair usually free if its covered. Kronoguy.

It is beacuse your Hard drive is not detected on the computer properly.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt work, Check whether your hard drive is good.

PXE bootup means the computer does not boot up from an operating system installed on a hard disk drive. PXE bootup uses a server on a network to boot up the computer.

PXE-E61:Media Test Failure


you got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.

Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.

You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.
