Thanks for taking the time.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I get the following error on Boot-up:
Broadcom UNDI PXE / 2.1 v12.2.0
All rights reserved.
PXE-E61> Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.
What I've tried:
- changing the boot order in the Bios
- I do not have a recovery CD so I thought I'd use an Ubuntu boot disk to try to see if the HDD was okay. I tried with an Ubuntu USB and CD, but all I got was a black screen with the '_' cursor on bootup. I checked if the usb worked on another computer and it did.
Note: it the Bios menu where you can change the boot order, the different numbers didnt have the lenghty names for the hard drives, just for example PXE. Does that mean that it's not recognizing the HDD?
Thanks and regards,
