RAM disk requires actual memory in order to create a 'virtual' drive. My first instinct would be to check to ensure that RAM is actually available. Perhaps memory is faulty or configured improperly.

Server will not PXE boot

Many routers fail because they do not support the DHCP option. Any CISCO product running ISO 12.2 and above has that ability. Contact CISCO for the PXE assignment.

HP proliant DL380 gen4 PXE-E61, when trying to install redhat and solaris.

First, it's not booting from a CD or Hard Disk if you've reached that error. The 'last-ditch' effort to boot is to attempt a PXE boot from the network card, but your Ethernet cable isn't plugged in. Unless you know you've setup such a PXE boot server, you'll want to check the BIOS settings to be sure the CD-ROM is set to boot first, followed by the Hard Disc. Be sure you have Disc 1 of the Linux installation set in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot. If you don't get the install screen, you may have another issue (bad CD-ROM Drive, bad cable/controller, no power to CD-ROM, etc.)

Another note on the DL380, if there is a RAID controller, you'll need to setup the RAID before installing the OS. You'll want to make sure your hard drives are properly installed and aren't failed. The RAID configuration screen will verify the RAID status once it has been initialized, which will somewhat verify the drive status.

Acer aspire d257 pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable error

Your computer tries to "boot" (start-up) from several devices:
* floppy-disk (if installed)
* disk-drive (if not "dead"),
* CD/DVD optical device (if "bootable" media has been loaded)
* PXE --> Pre-Execution Environment -- checks if there is a connection between the network-adapter on your computer to a "boot-server" on your local network -- it can load Windows from that "boot-server".

The "media-test failure" indicates that there is no network-cable attached to your computer *AND* the other-end of the network-cable is *NOT* connected to the "boot-server". So, you can that "error" message.

Is your disk-drive "dead" ????

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable acer extensa 542

Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy disk
* CD/DVD optical device
* disk-drive
* external CD/DVD
* USB memory stick
* PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment)

To use PXE, you need "media" -- a network cable connecting yur computer to a "boot-server". The "media test faiure, check cable" reports that no network-cable exists, or that it does exist WITHOUT being connected to a boot-server.

Probably, your computer failed to boot from a DEAD disk-drive, and then tried floppy/CD/USB before checking PXE.

Replace the disk-drive.

My Hp probook 4510s cannot boot it gives error of PXE failure after startup screen it says media cable check error.

Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:

* floppy disk
* CD/DVD drive
* internal disk-drive
* USB memory-stick
* over the network, if it can find a "boot-server" on the local network.

So, the 'PXE failure' and 'check cable' errors occur either because there is no cable connected to the network-port, or because there is no "boot-server" on your network.

Enter BIOS setup, and check the "order" of possible boot-devices,
to ensure that the "network-boot" device is set to the _lowest_ priority.

What this could mean is that the computer *TRIED* to boot from the disk-drive, but *FAILED* to do so, i.e., you have a problem with the disk-drive in your computer. Ouch!

Hp proliant server dl380 g3. gettting PXE-E61:Media test failure, check cable how to fix it..

Your server tries to "boot" from several sources:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD
* disk-drive
* network (if you have a "boot-server" somewhere on your network)

So, if your computer FAILS to boot from the first 3 devices, above, it will try the 4th, namely via your network-adapter.
When your computer finds that its network-adapter is *NOT* connected via an Ethernet cable to a boot-server, it reports "check cable" and "test of the media has failed".

So, why did your server *NOT* boot from the 3rd device, namely your disk-drive? Solve that problem, and the 4th device (the "network-boot") will not be tried, and the error-messages will not appear.

Can't boot up without a boot disk

Your computer has been configured to try to "boot" by loading the Operating System from a network-connected "boot-server". Since you're _NOT_ likely to have such a "boot-server" in your home-network, the error-messages that you get are what are _expected_ when your computer is _NOT_ connected via the Ethernet cable to a 'PXE' (Pre-Boot Execution Environment) boot-server.

Enter BIOS-setup, and disable the "boot from network" option.

PXE booting errors

I don't have any experience with this product but I am 99.9% sure your problem is with Option 67. This path is from the root as defined for the TFTP server, i.e. root for the TFTP service is not the same as root for the server proper.

Most likely it should be something like:

\Boot\GhostNBF.vfd

Argon PXE Boot Agent v2.01 2002 - PXE - E61

Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy-disk
* disk-drive
* CD-ROM
* USB memory-stick
* over a network, via PXE (Pre eXecution Environment)

If you have a network-cable connected to the Ethernet port on the computer, with the other end connected to a "boot-server", then the Operating System can be loaded over this network-connection.

But, if you get "media test failure" and "check cable", then the network-cable for PXE is either non-working or not-present.

Any disk-drive that shows "ZERO" blocks is very probably a DEAD disk-drive. Replace it.

How to get into the configuration utility to set the nic/ip address

The dell PE server should have a PXE boot menu. You probably need to go into PXE menu and configure, or they need to provide a PXE server so the server can boot from PXE automatically.
