I have the m-45 s-265 laptop, it all of the sudden decided not to boot up, I thought that maybe a problem with ram or harddrive and since I wanted to do an upgrade to both didnt worry about which was the problem and now I realize niether was becuase I am stuck with the same issue being:
I loaded freebsd, it seems to load but then when os goes to boot for the first time the boot process does not get passed the Pre-boot execution environment (PXE)v2.1
PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable... (no cable attached so fine)
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
'no bootable cdrom' ...flashes on the screen, so it seems to boot process does not even look for the harddrive although I can see the littel harddrive light blinking....I have change the bios boot sequence various times... Hdd, cdrom , etc... but to no avail...any ideas???
