:cry:  I have a F25 Av205 Toshiba Qosimio,
working fine until a couple of days ago. I

t has a Western HDD. However when powered,
it showed me a Black screen saying Built-In HDD Error.
Boot Agent FEv4.1.16, PXE-E61 Media Test Failure,
Pxe-MOF Exiting Intel Boot Agent.

So I thought maybe the Western HDD died, and
replaced it with a Samsung HDD, thinking I will just
load Windows 7 on and be up and running quick,
but after installing the New Samsung HDD,...........I got the same message,

Built-In HDD Error.
Boot Agent FEv4.1.16,
PXE-E61 Media Test Failure,
Pxe-MOF Exiting Intel Boot Agent.

Is formatting the HDD drive the issue here,
or are some drivers missing and need to be loaded here,
are drivers the problem here? How do I load new driver in before
formatting the new HDD? How do I install a new new operating system without 1st installing the drivers?

I would really appreciate any help, please

If the drive was the issue you should be able to put your Windows dvd into the cd/dvd drive and boot to that. You would then install Windows to the new hard drive from the dvd, and after it was finished you would then need to finish installing any drivers that Windows didn't already have.

You might need to move your cd/dvd drive up in the boot order in the bios of the machine.

I had to reply to tell you that your post was completely unhelpful. If a new hard disk is used, and the same error corrurs, then logically the old HD may not be at fault.

I am running into the same problem. I am going to see if i can update the BIOS as in this case i am using a fresh SSD drive which works without issues in a second laptop, but in this laptop i get the "Built-in HDD Error" message.
