PXE-E53 and 1962 No operating system found error messages

\015 I have an IBM NetVista 6341 B7U. It was supposed to\015\012have Windows 98 installed but when I booted it up no operating system\015\012was found. I assumed the hard drive had been wiped.\015\012\015\012After loading Windows XP Home Edition, I got the following error: \015\012PXE53-E53 No bootfile found. The next screen said no operating system\015\012found, F1 to reboot. I thought this meant the PC was trying to\015\012boot from a network server. I looked in setup/config and found no\015\012place to set the boot order! I went to Devices & IO Ports,\015\012Network Setup and disabled Preboot Execution Enviornment Boot\015\012Agent. Now I no longer get the PXE error, it just goes directly\015\012to the 1962 No operating system found screen. I changed it back\015\012to enable Preboot Execution Environment Boot Agent because I was unable\015\012to get internet access using DSL booted from CD when the Preboot\015\012Execution was disabled. The PXE53-E53 error no longer\015\012appears, even though Preboot Execution is now enabled.\015\012\015\012I can boot DSL from CD but I can't seem to back up\015\012settings. The system won't recognize USB drives at\015\012all, and won't let me write to a floppy. I'm new to Linux and\015\012assume this is because I don't know how to format a floppy and mount\015\012the drive.\015\012\015\012Originally I was going to use this machine to practice setting up a\015\012dual boot environment with Windows/Linux. I need the boot from\015\012the hard drive capability becauseI think my desktop got zapped my\015\012lightening and now it won't power up. I want to swap out the hard\015\012drive and hope it still works. \015\012\015\012I know what BIOS is and can't figure out why I can't find the boot\015\012options. I've spent hours and hours googling and haven't found\015\012(or recognized!) a solution.\015

Answers :

On the NetVista S40 you can get to the boot order thru the BIOS menu (press F1 at power-on).
In the BIOS menu select Start Options (hit Enter), the next menu has Startup Sequence selected, hit Enter. You should now see the boot order change page.
The NetVista 6341 BIOS should be similar to the NetVista S40.
Hope this helps.
