Hi Vlatka1234 ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Message means it failed to detect the device like harddrive from where it should continue the process of booting to the operating system.

 

"PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable  PXE - M0F: Exiting PXE ROM"

 

Try in initially checking the BIOS if the harddrive is visible then reset the BIOS default if needed . 

Turning on the machine using the Novo Key (item 2 page 78).

 

Reseating the harddrive  (removing and then placing back making sure that the connections are good) can also help.

Else, having the drive replaced or tested with aa known good working drive can isolate the issue further.

 

Update us how things go.

 

Regards

Hi Vlatka1234 , 

 

Greetings . 

 

If there are no harddrive detected in the BIOS , it leads most likely to a failing harddrive or connection issue . 

Reseating the drive or even testing the same harddrive on a different machine like slaving it on a hard drive enclosure can further isolate the issue.

 

Having another harddrive to swap and test with , or to use a usb boot drive can verify the issue.

 

Update us how things go.

 

Regards

Hi Vlatka1234 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

In the same situation where boot and / or harddrive is in question, I usually boot on a separate device like a live rescue usb thumb stick. This can be use to check if the harddrive is detected by the machine itself.

 

Otherwise, having it tested on a computer repair shop can help as they would have neccesary tools to test the machine with specially if the BIOS do not see the physical drive. 

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
