When I turn on my desktop PC it displays the HP invent Logo and then I get the following display

HP UNDI PXE-2.1 V8.1.53

(then some HP copyright stuff)

HP Base Code PXE-2.1 v1.0.2

(then some HP copyright stuff) and the following errors:

CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 16 35 66 31 52 GUID: 0EF0C819  2CB9 DA11 BBDA 356631520016


DHCP (with a revolving stick)

This is followed by the following error message:

PXE-E53 no boot file name received

PXE-MOF exiting HP PXE ROM

Non-system Disk or disk error

Replace and strike any key when ready

I would greatly appreciate your assistance in resolving this issue.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It seems that the computer is trying to boot from the network, and it is not being able to contact the necessary servers to get its configuration.

If that is not the intention, you might want to configure the BIOS to disable PXE boot, and/or change the boot order.

    I think the harddrive is no longer being detected by the bios. Check the bios and see if the harddrive shows up. if not, try to open up the casing that houses the harddrive and see if the connection is lose. if that fails You will probably need to get a new harddrive. Good Luck!

    Thank you Carlos. I had the same doubt and you confirmed it that my computer was trying to boot from the network, but it is not the intention. It always used the hard disk to boot. How and why would this change? Going back to your answer can you please tell me how do I edit the BIOS. I cannot access the BIOS (hitting the delete key). In fact none of the function keys would interrupt the screen scroll! Please advise. I very much appreciate your time and assistance!

    If it was not changed intentionally, then maybe PXE boot was enabled by default and as Darkstar911 suggested, you have a hard drive failure (so the machine tries to boot using the other options, including PXE). In most HP machines you would enter the BIOS by pressing and holding the F1 key when the HP logo appears. If that doesn't work, you might want to try disconnecting the mouse and any other unnecessary device, and then reboot the machine and try to enter the BIOS again. Also, I would make sure the keyboard is working properly. If you have another machine available, you could also test your apparently faulty hard drive on it to confirm whether it is in fact what is causing the boot problem or not.

    Thanks Darkstar. My main problem is that I cannot acces the BIOS. The function keys and the delete key don't seem to work at all! I tried using a different keybord and mouse but upto no avail. Is there any thing else I could try? Thanks for your helh.

    Carlos, I tried using F1 key and also the F10 key, this did not help. I repeated the same process after disconnecting the mouse. I got the "keyboard missing error" message (although it was the mouse that was disconnected!). This did not open up the access to BIOS. I am going to connect the hard disk to another computer to check its integrity as advised by you. Thanks for your assistance

    Hewlett-Packard (HP) - Pavilion, TouchSmart, Vectra, OmniBook, Tablet •Press the F1 key after restarting the computer. •HP Tablet PCs may use F10 or F12. •Other HP computers may allow access to BIOS CD-Rom, Hard disk, USB device and network are mostly set as bootable devices on most computers. It will cycle through all of them if there is no valid bootable device. Good luck.
