Laptop technician: Pete, Computer Expert replied 6 months ago

The PXE boot error is caused because the HDD is not recognized and the BIOS goes through all of the boot devices in turn and cannot find a boot file so defaults to the last boot option, usually the LAN.

If you can boot into Windows then you just have to move the LAN boot option to the last boot option.

Boot into Setup (BIOS) go to Boot Priorities and using the arrow keys move LAN to the last option in the Boot Order. It should read CD/DVD first, HDD second and everything else after.

Let me know if that works?
