You need to boot from an installation CD for the operating system, or the Toshiba restore set. New hard drives are completely blank when you purchase them. The computer is looking for something to boot from and cant find it, so it trys to boot from ethernet. Check your bios set up for boot order and boot devices. You might try disabling boot from network.
The system is not finding any bootable media (Hard Drive) and is attempting to boot via the network card (PXE Boot) the error message is saying that there is not PXE network to boot from and it is exiting the process.
Generally, this is caused by a hard Drive failure. Reseat the drive and or drive connections and see if the system will find the hard drive.
Generally, a Hard drive failure
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.
The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.
Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!
sounds like hard disk related. turn it off and disconnect the power cord, remove and reconnect both the power and data cables to the hard disk, disconnect any external USB storage and remove any floppy disk, if any. If you get the same result, try to connect the har disk using different power & data cables (IDE/SATA), and test it on another SATA channel if available. If same error, you may need to reformat the hard disk and reinstall WIndows, or you may have to get a new Hard Disk if it fails even when tried on another computer.
Open BIOS and configure your boot devices priority. First boot device should be the hdd. Also check if the laptops see the hard disk, i think your hard disk have a problem and thats why laptop wants to boot from network.
"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
Broadcom is a maker of Network cards and PXE is a generic name for Network Boot Bios .. have you set your Laptop to boot from a network before CD ?? (go into BIOS @ power on and set CD first, hard disk second)
If not, then it can't see any other bootable device so ends up trying the network as a 'last resort' ...
hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
