  1. A friend has placed an HP Pavilion zv6007, with XPhe2, in my hands to help boot up. The boot process is an endless loop showing the following on screen and then trying to reboot:

    For Realtek RTL8139{x}/8130/810x PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 {020326}

    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM

    Any suggestions?

    This means a hard drive failure...

    Thanks, I have tried a known good drive in its place; exact same message appears. Tried the drive from the zv6007 in another unit; hdd functions fine.

    Get into the bios and make sure the hard drive is first in the boot order...
