Laptop Keeps Booting From LAN
Posted on 2009-07-06
My laptop keeps trying to boot from LAN. I checked in BIOS and LAN boot is 4th after:
Yet, when I turn it on I get this message:
Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 082)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)
CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 16 36 6E 47 15 GUID: 00F8D2CD-4FF4-DA11-8186-0016366E4715
PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE-ROM
After 15 or so tries I can get the computer to finally boot through to Windows XP without showing the above message.
My assumption is that my Hard Drive is failing most of the time. However, I haven't seen any other signs than of that other then the LAN boot. I also ran a disk check from HP which said the Hard Drive is working properly.
I also reformatted the computer and reinstalled the OS. That didn't help.
Is there something I'm missing?
