Answers :

The Broadcom PXE looks for a boot device/files from a network source if the network cable is't plugged in then you get the PXE-E61: Media test failure check cable, you can turn this off in the bios, when this doesn't find any boot information it moves onto the next boot device which is defined in the bios, usally the dvd drive then the HD. If this is a Altos server you have bought they are not supplied with an OS so it wont boot from the HD to begin with, if you already had a OS installed and it wont boot then there is something wrong with with the HD or the connectors or posibly the boot sectors are corrupted, if the device is making th tak tak noise the it is having trouble reading te device.
@tatunka - mine is an acer too. But "Guest's" solution of using F2 at boot, and 'disable network boot' in the BIOS got rid of this little niggle for me (thanks, Guest). Good luck.
