Re: Booting my system through LAN
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.

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.
Your computer is trying to boot from a Network or Lan. You need to go
into the Bios or System Setup and change the boot order or boot
Reboot the computer and notice what key the screen says to hit to get
into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. Change your boot order
or boot sequence. The best sequence is to have the CD Drive 1st and the
Hard Drive 2nd. Changing this in the bios or system setup will make
the change permanent. Just make sure when you boot the computer that
nothing is in the CD drive unless you have a repair disc or operating
system disc in it.
You could make a temporary change but then you
will have to change it every time you boot. If you notice the screen
when you boot it also gives you the key to hit to change the boot order
or boot sequence. This will allow you to change it just for this time
that you are booting.
Try to check if the windows 7 disc that you are using is not just an upgrade disc. Make sure that it is a bootable disc. Try to use other bootable disc to test. Also make sure that the boot device priority is set CD/DVD drive.
Check the bios settings just to be sure that all the drives are connected and that the booting order is OK. If you are not sure with the boot order, reset it to default settings. Have you tried booting from the bootable cd of the same or higher version. This is the next step you should take. Try to repair your operating system and if repair fails, you have to format the machine
When booting up look for the message that says Enter Setup press (key number like F1 etc), then cet the boot order to have the CD rom first and not the HD (hard drive. Hit escape and then select save settings.This will then allow booting from the WinXP disk.
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
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.
Hard drive has been coruppted. Hold alt f10 on statup to format and reinstall. If that dont work you may need to try install from cd's provided when you purchased laptop. If that dont work buy new hard drive and restore from cd's. Good Luck.
"PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot" 1.Go to Bios Settings 2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option. 3.Save The configuration(F10) This Will Solve this problem
