> start PXE over IPv6

 

That is "start the P(re) e(X)ecution E(nvironment) over I(nternet) P(rotocol) V(ersion) 6".

 

In some "corporate" environments, a computer can boot over the network connection, by connecting to a "boot-server".

 

In the "home" environment, it means that the computer tried to boot from disk-drive & CD/DVD drive & floppy-drive & USB stick.  Finding nothing "bootable" at each of those locations, it tried the "network boot".

 

The "Other Person" is correct -- your disk-drive either:

* has no electrical power, and thus cannot be accessed;

* is not connected via the "data" cable to the motherboard (check at both ends of the SATA cable);

* is "dead" (not spinning);

* has a corrupted file-system, such that the "boot" files can no longer be found.

 

If you want to peek inside your (desktop?) computer, with the power off, and the power-cable disconnected, just touch the disk-drive -- if it is not "warm", i.e,. above room-temperature, it has not been spinning (and generating some heat).

I have this message appear every time I boot up.  It delays the start but it does boot up fine.

I have read the forum and every inquiry has a different suggestion to solve the problem.

I have a new HP 570-p017c PC, less than 30 days old.  It is a refurbished model so there must be previous problems.

 

Noww what?

Here's another suggestion.  Sometimes, free advice is worth exactly what you have paid for it.

 

Your motherboard can "boot" from several sources:

 

1. CD/DVD

2. disk-drive

3. USB memory-stick

4. network, using the PXE (Pre eXecution Environment)

 

Enter BIOS SETUP, and change the "order" of checking the above boot devices.

Move the 'disk-drive' to the top of the list, and move 'PXE' to the bottom of the list.

It means that the disk-drive is "dead".

Therefore, the motherboard cannot read any files from the disk-drive.

Having this "error" mean that Windows cannot be loaded from the disk-drive.

 

Take your computer to a qualified computer-technician, to replace the disk-drive with something compatible, and to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive, to restore your computer to a working condition.

 

Or, if you have the technical skills, you can replace and reinstall yourself.

 

Your choice ? :Wink:

Do you mean that nothing that you have tried has fixed the problem, or that the computer still is not working?

 

In some "corporate" environments, a computer can boot over the network connection, by connecting to a "boot-server".

 

In the "home" environment, it means that the computer tried to boot from disk-drive & CD/DVD drive & floppy-drive & USB stick.  Finding nothing "bootable" at each of those locations, it tried the "network boot".

 

The "Other Person" is correct -- your disk-drive either:

* has no electrical power, and thus cannot be accessed;

* is not connected via the "data" cable to the motherboard (check at both ends of the SATA cable);

* is "dead" (not spinning);

* has a corrupted file-system, such that the "boot" files can no longer be found.

 

If you want to peek inside your (desktop?) computer, with the power off, and the power-cable disconnected, just touch the disk-drive -- if it is not "warm", i.e,. above room-temperature, it has not been spinning (and generating some heat).

 

Your only remedy is to take the computer to a quailfied technician, for replacement of the disk-drive, and for the reinstallation of Windows onto the new disk-drive.
