PXE-E61 : media test failure check cable

I just got my computer back after having to send it away to get it checked by the company I bought it from as something was faulty.

They said it was fixed and sent me the computer back so I began to install Windows 7 on it.

When I put the CD into the optical drive and started the computer.

It started up, I got the MSI logo and I'm able to access the bios menu.

I've sent the HDD first and CD second, it didn't worked.

Put the CD first then HDD and still the same error.

It says;
PXE-E61 : media test failure check cable
PXE-E60 : PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM.

After this I get a option which says
Reboot and select proper boot device
Or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key.

I press enter since the disk is in the drive but nothing happens.

  1. The machine isn't booting from the CD for some reason. It's trying to boot from a network resource (via the network adapter) since it can't find any bootable media anywhere else.

    When you changed the first boot device to CD/DVD drive in BIOS Setup, did you "Exit and Save Changes"?
    If you are sure you did, I would investigate either the CD drive or the Windows disc being faulty.

    I did. I've got a feeling it's the DVD drive as the delivery company who delivered my last components broke a video card so.. yeah.. i would choose a different one but these are the only ones i can pick with this company.
  3. Then change the company you buy PC parts from.
