You cannot do this as the lan boot up refers to a workstation and server type setup where the operating system back up is saved on to a server incase of a system crash; which will not apply to your pc.

Bios boot order is ignored, pc boots from HDD instead of cd-rom drive


Disable the LAN, USB, and HDD boot and let the CD-ROM be the only selected boot device. Some systems allow you to select a boot drive when you see the Manufacturer's splash screen by hitting the F12 key.

I have a Ntdetect Failed promt on toshiba p15-s479 laptop


LOL, sounds like you've got it trying to reboot from a Network or Lan first. Go back into the Bios and change the boot sequence to make the CD Drive your first boot option and the Hard Drive your second boot option.

You will want to boot from the CD to get the operating system installed. After it is installed be sure to remove the cd otherwise it will try to boot from it. Best option would be to go back into the bios and make the hard drive your first boot option after you get everything loaded.

You might be able to direct the system to boot from the cd as soon as you press the power button. Most systems will post an option to hit a certain key to get into the Bios or System Setup and a key to change the Boot order just for this one time.

Will only boot in safe mode won't connect to lan or wireless, locks up after a few mins, ran everything I can to repair..can't access dvd drive to do a complete format any suggestions?


You may need to pull the hard drive and connect to another computer as a external device to format the hardware, but if you can access bios, reset to factory defaults before pulling the hard drive and try again.

Starting up i get PXE-E61 media test failure some people tell me its the hard drive some say the cddrve others say it could be trying to boot from a LAN


PXe Boot is used by the computer to boot to a network DOS-type environment.If you are receiving a PXe failure message on bootup check that your PC is set to boot from the CD Rom, Floppy, and Hard Drive BEFORE network or other boot device.

That's where you need to check to get solution to your problem, if not... try these


1. your settings in your bios
2. faulty cable/wire to your media device (hard drive, cd/dvd rom, etc)
3. The cmos battery (which indirectly points to your bios settings)



Hope this helps!

Hi, your laptop will try and boot an operating system in a given order denoted under your bios, usually it will look for a bootable cd or dvd first (which is why the light on your cd/dvd drive flashes when you switch on your laptop), it will then try and find an operating system on the hard drive and if all else fails will try and boot from a network connection. In this instance it looks like what it is telling you is that is has failed to detect bootable media in the cd/dvd rom drive (i.e. no windows disc), it has failed to detect a bootable hard drive and it has failed to detect a bootable network connection.

It sounds very likely that either your hard drive was damaged in the fall or the connection has become unstable so first off remove the lower covers from your laptop and remove and refit your hard drive, try to power it up and see what happens. Let us know how you go.

Hope this helps

Bootmgr is missing


You have formatted the HDD in another computer and the “boot manager” was destroyed.
There is no operating system on the HDD and therefore the error message: “BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" appears

The second message “PXE-M0F: Existing PXE ROM” says that the notebook tries to boot form the LAN but it’s not able to find an OS using the LAN connection!

Why all this error messages appears?!
Well, I think the CD/DVD drive cannot read the inserted WinXP CD and therefore in switches to LAN.

Note; You can boot from the drive by pressing the “C” button immediately after notebook starting or you will press the F12 to get the booting menu. Then you could choose the ODD as booting source.

If you will be not able to boot from your WinXP CD I assume either the CD is faulty or the CD/DVD drive cannot handle this CD.

Cd/dvd drive missing on my computer


Enter in the BIOS and see in the boot order or the internal units if the dvd unit is still there. If it isn't then it's dead, replace it.
If it is then you didn't do a correct reinstall. Enter the bios again and make sure the dvd unit is the first in the boot order, boot from a Linux Live-CD like PCLinuxOS and from Computer Management/ Hard Disks  delete all partitions, format the entire disk to something else then format it again to NTFS or FAT. This is the only way you can be sure you are doing a clean install.

Hi

The ISO files need to be burned into a cd with a special program. Please use this software. http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm

Next, the reason why you are getting the error message is because the computer is not starting from the cd, or the cd was burned incorrectly.

The computer is most likely starting from the hard drive instead and since it's formatted you get the error message.

To get the computer to start from the cd instead and to install the system again, you need to adjust the boot order.

The laptop might have a Boot menu feature (look at the screen right when you power it on and see if it says anywhere press xx key to enter Boot menu) If you don't have the boot menu option then you need to enter setup or bios, same thing different name.

The computer will say at some part of the screen to press xx button to enter setup or bios / cmos.

In Bios you must adjust the boot order so that the Cd / dvd drive is before the hard drive in the order. this way the computer will start from the cd instead of trying the hard drive.

Here are a few good tutorial videos on the subject of changing the boot order.

Let me know if the problem is not solved or if you need further assistance.

Thank you,
