HP Z210 Boot Problem

HP Recommended
HP Z210
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought this used Workstation couple of days ago and decided to do a clean install of Windows 10 with a USB stick.

At first it was not giving me the option to install windows and was directly booting into the previously installed windows. So I decided to factory reset the BIOS, this worked and it allowed me to install windows like I usually do.


Everything worked fine, I installed the drivers and stuff then turned it off. But when I started the system after few hours it showed me something similar to:

Initializing Intel Boot Agent.


Then it showed the error: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, Check Cable.

After this the screen changed and it showed some "Non System Disk error" and told me to press any key after inserting the correct disk.


So I pressed ctrl+alt+del went into BIOS and changed to boot order by bringing Hard Disk to the top in both UEFI and Legacy boot sources and voila it worked.

But now every time I turn on my computer it shows the same error. If I even press "ctrl+alt+del" everthing restarts and my PC works fine. I found out that I don't even need to change BOOT order.

It just works automatically.

If I restart everything works fine but if I turn it OFF then ON the error appears again.


Please help me out anyone.
