Answers :

A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
\015\012Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
\015\012To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.
