Boot failure on Pavillion: PXE failure

Pavillion 500 Series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Booting up returns PXE errors, the main ones being:

 

PXE-E53: noboot filename received

PXE--MOF: Exiting PXE ROM

 

Pushing any key, including F10 or F1, results in the same failed boot sequence running - it won't bring up the Boot Options screen. Apparently it is trying to boot from a network that doesn't exist.

 

We have had this problem occur from time to time, but it always resolved by re-rebooting. This time it doesn't.

 

Pavillion 500

Win 10 64-bit (I think)

Finally got the boot screen up, went to System Diagnosis , selected Quick Check - and it says "SMART Check not installed". Same for Full Check.

 

Now what?

Boot failure on Pavillion: PXE failure

Hi

 

A PXE error usually means no bootable media is found.

 

The system is looking for a bootable network connection.

 

I would think your HDD or SSD has failed. Or check the power and data connections to the storage device and the MB.

 

Boot to the BIOS (tap "ESC" at boot and select "Setup" from the Startup Menu). Then check Storage Devices to see if the HDD is detected in the BIOS.

 

Run HP Diagnostics.

 

Tom

Two options:

 

1. remove the disk-drive from the computer, and temporarily connect it to another HP computer, as a "secondary" disk-drive.  Boot the computer, go to System Diagnosis, select Quick Check on that "secondary" disk-drive.

 

2. remove the disk-drive from the computer, and temporarily connect it to a non-HP computer, as a "secondary" disk-drive.  Boot the computer, and see if the secondary disk-drive is detected & accessible. Use the free SPECCY software (Google-search for "download free SPECCY").  Access its "Storage" section.  Select the secondary disk-drive.  Expand the S.M.A.R.T. section, to look at its report about the "health" of the secondary disk-drive.
