How to use a recovery disc on an aspire 5100

System required a password, I entered 00000000. Thereafter I continue to see PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM

I have restore discs

  1. You may not have a working hard disk drive.
    That 'Media Test Failure' seems to indicate a problem with the hard disk drive.
    'Check cable' would be a hint to make sure the HDD is connected to the power/data cable.

    If you have some advanced skills (or are willing to do some study) you can run a free Rescue disk like Parted Magic.
