Is this system connected to a Network?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to How do i repair PXE-E61: ...

That error message is telling you that it's either not connected or that the Network is Down so it can not find the initial Boot Files from the Network.

Assuming that this is a stand alone system you'll need to enter the BIOS and set it to Boot from the HDD not the Network if you want it to work correctly.

If it's actually a network system you'll need to repair the failed network or replace what has been removed.
