PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE
Posted on 2005-04-21
I bought a used computer from the company that moved to another area from our building.
It's Dell OptiPlex GX155OS+ Pentium III. The guy gave me a Win95 CD with it (although it had XP before on it). When I turn on computer and put this CD in, it started reading the CD (probably) but then I got this PXE error. Read about this everything was available on internet and on experts site (not much really), went to system setup- Boot sequence: the first in the list was CD-ROM, then Diskette, then Hard Drive and then Device List, Ctrl->. Clicked Ctrl->, removed PXE from the Boot Device Priority to Exclude from Boot Device Priority list. Since there was no option for CD-ROM, for some reason, in Boot Device Priority List, I created a floppy from bootdisk.com (copied boot95b.exe, to be consistent with the CD I got), inserted floppy and clicked ALT-B (for reboot)
got Non-System disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready. What I also noticed after million tries, it puts back this PXE into the boot sequence if I set Boot Sequence to anything else but Device List, Ctrl->.
Thanks for all the help in advance.
