PXE-E61:MEDIA TEST FAILURE PXE-M0F:EXITING BROADCOME PXE ROM


Answers :

Hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
\015\012if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.

\015\012let me know if it helps...
\015\012good luck
