Dell Inspiron N4030 :: Just Gives Code PXE-E53 - No Boot Filename Received

Feb 10, 2013

PXE-E53: No boot filename received.The client received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download. There are several possible causes:

• The 060 DHCP option is not set during installation, on Windows Server 2008 with the DHCP service, is installed locally. To resolve this issue, modify the following PXE configuration option if DHCP service is required to be installed locally: Open the PXE Configuration Utility, select the PXE Server tab, and for DHCP Server discovery select the No DHCP server installed on PXE server (Use DHCP port) option.

• The DHCP Server and the PXE Server were located on the same server, but one of them was moved to a different server. This would result in an incorrect PXE Server configuration. To resolve this issue, reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.

• The DHCP relay agent, either a Proxy DHCP Server or a switch configured with helper addresses, is not configured correctly. For example, if DHCP and PXE are on separate servers, the DHCP relay agent needs to have both addresses in its configuration. To resolve this issue, correct the DHCP relay agent configuration.

• If the Microsoft DHCP service is installed on the PXE server, but is disabled or unconfigured, Altiris PXE Setup configures PXE to work with the local DHCP service (even if the DHCP service is disabled). This causes the PXE server to not respond to PXE clients that get a DHCP address from DHCP services running elsewhere on the network. To resolve this issue, remove Microsoft DHCP services from the PXE server and reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.

• A firewall or network security software is enabled in the network environment.

Acer :: (6935G) Boot Problem After Restart (cant Access Bios / Boot From Disk Etc)

Jan 9, 2010

I got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).

My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).

If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 - Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed After BIOS Update

Dec 13, 2013

I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).

Dell ::Inspiron 6000, Can't Boot BIOS,

Jan 13, 2009

When I restarted I got a blue screen saying "memory parity error". I restarted again the blue screen was gone, and it tells me a NIC adapter is having problems,

and asks me to press (S) to shut it off. When I tried pressing 'S' it didn't respond (more like it froze), so I restarted again.

This time I can finally boot into windows. But now my 'new hardware found' wizard went berserk, and kept on telling me there is new hardware found, non-stop. I had a look at my Device Manager and noticed the following had exclamation marks on it:

-OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 host controller
-intel pro/wireless 2915abg network connection

-Ricoh R/RL/5c476(II) or compatible cardbus controller
-SDA standard compliant SD host controlle .....

Dell Inspiron 7000 :: Won't Boot - Bad BIOS?

May 17, 2004

My Inspirion 7000 will not boot and won't enter bios setup. I  turned on mode to reduce cpu usage, and to show startup on screen. Next thing I know it won't boot.

If I press f2 early during what should be the post testing it says "entering setup" at the bottom of the screen. It hangs right there and goes no further.

I've pulled the hd, cd/floppy, battery, tried everthing suggested from another user I found who had the exact same problem.

[URL] ....

I've tried to boot several different ways. It always hangs there at the 'entering setup' - won't boot from floppy or cd.

This laptop has worked without a problem for years. Running Win98se

Is there anyway to "reset" the bios when bios itself cannot be loaded?

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Cannot Access BIOS Or Boot Order During POST

Jan 3, 2013

What I Was Doing:

All I wanted to do was install an SSD (SanDisk Extreme 240GB) as my primary drive using factory recovery created from Dell Backup and Recovery/Recovery Media from USB drive.... I was trying to update firmware on the SSD. It requires a download and the creation of a thumb drive to which one boots after adding it in the BIOS. Ever since I tried using that thumb drive during boot (on power up it was in a USB slot with the intention of opening BIOS and setting that thumb drive as a boot device to complete firmware update) things have been a mess.

The Problems:

I have run into a situation where no matter what key I press during startup, it has no impact on the startup. Main problem is that F2 will not open BIOS. F12 does not show Boot Order.

 Here are the symptoms:

Cannot access BIOS or Boot Order during POST All partitions on the factory 1TB hard drive now show in Windows File Explorer whereas previously only the partition labeled C: OS was shown

Potentially Stupid Things I Tried:

I discovered that if there are no hard drives installed, the system will boot to a DOS-type screen with options for Boot Order (with no drives it lists only Network Boot), Setup, Diagnostics, and Boot Configuration.

Setup takes me to the BIOS (vA11) but obviously with no drives showing Diagnostics takes to me to a test suite which when run gives me an error on the video memory but all else tests OK (tests of the video memory from within the Dell Suite within Win 8 show no errors) Boot Configuration gives me Legacy, UEFI Secure and UEFI Not Secure

I also downgraded the BIOS from A11 to A08 and then back to A11 in hopes of getting back access to BIOS but no luck.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Can't Boot After Bios Update Failure

Feb 22, 2013

I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 running Windows 7 64-bit Pro which has been working fine, but I was thinking about getting an mSata flash drive to cache the hard disk, and reading on this forum discovered that my A01 bios version wasn't up to the job, so tried to update the bios tonight.

I downloaded the 7720A12.exe from the Dell site but wanted to backup my bios first.  Again searching this forum, I saw a post that said there was a backup option when running the exe.  Wrong.

Running it from within windows it immediately said it was going to reboot (I wasn't given an option!).  My laptop powered down as if doing a restart, but immediately hung. 

There was nothing but blackness on the screen, no text, no beeps.  It appeared to be stuck in a boot cycle, as the screen back light was coming on, and off, and on, and off etc, for 10 minutes straight. 

I powered down and powered up and I get the dell logo and can enter the bios setup, but after that, no matter what I do, I get a dos based "BOOT MENU" with just these options on:

Network Boot <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu Setup <- loads the bios settings Diagnostics <- runs a diagnostic program which tests the hardware and reports all tests pass Change boot mode setting <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu

I can't get passed this menu.

I've tried booting from a DVD - both a Windows 7 installation disk, and the Dell recovery DVD I created when I first got the laptop, neither DVD boots, and apart from buzzing the DVD drive, don't have any effect at all. 

Both disks have been tested in another Inspiron laptop I have, and I also set the boot priority order in the bios so that DVD is the first item in the list.

I've also tried a bootable USB stick, but no joy there either.  The light on the stick shows it's being accessed, but I still end up at the Boot Menu above.

Dell Inspiron 15R SE :: BIOS Boot Up Time Increased After Upgrading To Version A09

Mar 20, 2013

Recently, my HDD and DVD drive went-off together and Dell replaced the parts.

Since new HDD has been placed, support team installed Windows 7 Home Premium and I had a excellent booting time of 20 seconds (total boot time, BIOS A07, no mSATA).

While upgrading Dell drivers for bluetooth,prompted for BIOS update and upgraded it now.

After upgrading my BIOS to A09, now my BIOS boot time itself 19 seconds, and windows boot time is 23 seconds.

Why previously good performance went down after upgrading BIOS...

Dell :: Slow Bios Boot

Jan 12, 2009

i currently have the a12 bios and when i turn on my 1530, it takes at least 30-40 seconds for the bar to load up.

It stops 80% of the way and then freezes then the dvd drive makes a noise and loads up. Like i dont know why it is slow to startup. What factors are causing this? Computer works fine.

its just the Startup dell bios screen that takes forever. I tried to go back with the A08 and A09 but all it did was make slower.

Lenovo P500 P/Y/Z Series :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

May 25, 2014

My Ideapoad P500 is approximately 16 months old (so the warranty period is out, obviously!) A couple of nights after a reboot I got the message "Repairing Hard Disk errors. This could take an hour or longer."... or something very similar. The laptop hung up at that message for more than 18 hours.
I did a hard reboot and now get the message "Checking media" followed by the error "Boot failed." This leads to the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed."No I don't have any recovery media.Yes I have pretty recent backups so that is not a problem.I've got an enclosure that I can use to hook my laptop hard drive up to so I can see if the drive is even readable.
Now here is the 64 thousand dollar question... how do I get the hard drive out of the laptop? I have taken the five screws out of the back. At that point, I think the DVD drive should slide out, but it does to get the hard drive out?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y500 / Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Jul 31, 2013

I have a y500 Lenovo gaming laptop with Windows 8, and for the past couple of days, each time my laptop is put in hibernation or powered down, whenever I turn it back on it gives me this message:

"Default Boot Device Missing or boot failed Insert recovery media and hit any key Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device to boot or recovery media."

Then it brings me to a page with 3 boot options, and only the Windows Boot Manager works. I'm doing scans and hardware scans but so far nothing is being found. This laptop is less than 2 months old so I really don't think it's a hardware problem, and I haven't downloaded anything recently that may have messed this up. I would contact Lenovo but I'm unsure if this is an issue with the laptop, or Windows 8.

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way.  I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E531 Not Able To Boot From CD It Always Boot Into Preinstalled Windows 8

Nov 14, 2013

just received my new E531 Edge Thinkpad from Lenovo.
Right now I'm not able to boot from CD, it will always boot into the preinstalled Windows 8.
I've tried the F12 method to select a different boot device during startup where I can see the installed DVD RAM drive and select it, but no effect it returns immediately to the select screen.
I've played around with the various BIOS setting disabling the secure boot option and changing the boot order so that the DVD drive is first. Then the system will check for the the CD (you can hear it spinning during start up) but will start into Windows 8 right afterwards again.
I checked with various bootable CDs as well as DVDs but always same effect.
What am I missing? Any other BIOS or Windows 8 settings I need to change for that.
I have other Lenovo notebooks running like the X230, the T520 or an older T61 where booting from CD never seems to be an issue.
As the DVD drive is working correctly within Windows 8 I assume that it is in general functioning and shouldn't be broken.

Dell XPS 15 :: 2 Beeps And Bios Screen With Boot Options...

Oct 15, 2014

2 beeps I thought was a memory issue but the screen doesn't say anything about a memory problem. there are 3 options 1 boot to windows 2 boot options and the 3 I cant remember. option 2 and 3 may be out of order. I have looked in bios for memory test to turn it off but I don't see it. pressing F1 (first option) boots normally and system runs great as usual. 1 other thing, the battery light flashes red 4 times and then holds white for a second then cycles back to the flashing red. this all started at the same time. I tried to do a bios update but im already running the latest version so I get the window that says it wont be completed. the battery does seem to last a very long time as it usualy does, its a 9 cell battery.
