Upgraded my 250GB to 1TB HDD using GParted. Intel Boot Agent: No Boot Filename Recieved! Help!

Question: Upgraded my 250GB to 1TB HDD using GParted. Intel Boot Agent: No Boot Filename Recieved! Help!

Hello!

Followed the advice of some other posters and I did the following:

1.) Downloaded Imgburn and GParted
2.) Installed my new HDD
3.) Changed BIOS boot to CD ->> HDD
4.) Loaded up GParted; Cloned my Partition from 250GB to the 1TB.
5.) Turned off computer, removed old HDD.
6.) Turned on computer, got this error.

Apparently this means that the computer cannot find an OS. If I cloned the HDD, why can it not find the OS?

Any help?

Preferred Solution: Upgraded my 250GB to 1TB HDD using GParted. Intel Boot Agent: No Boot Filename Recieved! Help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Upgraded my 250GB to 1TB HDD using GParted. Intel Boot Agent: No Boot Filename Recieved! Help!

Hello,

I guess your HDD is not bootable...
I mean first format your HDD, set the patitions you need, set the wanted partition as primary and active, load your 250GB.

Well just thought...;
check the settings of your HDD, does your Jumper is in "master" position (check the diagram on the HDD if you are not sure) and the second point if you have Connector make sure you do not have 2 master on the same map (your DVD player and your hard drive for instance) .

Let us know and good luck!!!

Please help. Before my mom does something to make it worse.

Answer:Boot Agent cannot receive boot filename

Such messages typically appear...when the system is trying to do a network boot.

That may happen because the CMOS battery needs to be replaced...in some systems, such will make the system return to default boot options.

I would go into the BIOS and see what the first boot device is...if it's not the hard drive, try to change it and save the changes...then try to boot.

If the change doesn't hold or cannot be accomplished...I would replace the CMOS battery.

New to this forum, sadly my laptop won't boot....I'm hoping I can get some insight here.
I get the black screen with the following messages:
"PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine."

I can get into BIOS and run diagnostics followed by the prompt: "Success, all tests pass.".....but system won't boot.
I searched and searched the internet and tried various things but no change.
I removed and reinstalled the hard drive twice, no change.
I made sure the HDD is first to boot order in BIOS...no change.
If anyone can point me in the right direction I would certainly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

Press F12 at powerup - boot to the Dell diagnostics and run an extended test on the hard drive - this will take a couple of hours (not just the 10 min or so the quick test did).  It'll likely show a bad drive.

Hi all, we are using x230 with Win7 ultimate and domainintegration in our companies environment. Some devices have problems at startup. Sometimes they stop booting at the Intel Boot Agent screen. When you reboot the machine it is impossible to enter the BIOS-Setup too. You are able to press F1 and afterwards you can type the BIOS-Password (if you are using one) but afterwards it stops again at the same point as  mentioned above and does not show BIOS. Then, many  reboots later (more than 5 I would say) it suddenly works fine again for some rounds of booting and shut-down. And you suddenly have the same problem again without having changed something seriously.BIOS Version is updated to the latest one I could find on lenovo pages. (2.51 Rev.01) It's impossible to give a device with such a flapping error into users hands.Do you have any ideas? Thanks Martin













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:x230 sometimes does not boot - stops on Intel Boot Agent screen

Is this only happening when the devices are connected to the network or also when they are disconnected?If it is happening only when they are connected to the network you maybe should try to disable the LAN bootup agent in the BIOS...

Question: Intel Boot Agent

I'm trying to boot diagnostic CDs, but every time I set the boot ordr to optical drive first, hard drive second , this fucking Intel Boot Agent flops up first and starts doing something which loops indefinitely. I cant see a way to override it in the mobo BIOS (I've set the optical drive as the first boot device for Christ's sake), and there's sweet FA to see in the NIC's own BIOS. Looks like you can disable it altogether via a DOS F/W flash, but I don't want to have to do that. I just want to boot a CD now and then. What can I do?

Question: intel boot agent

in the past week and a half, or so, when booting up, or rebooting, I'm getting a dos screen, that basically says "intel boot agent" with some description. At the bottom of the description, there's a cursor mark rotating....this screen hangs for 15 secs or a little more, and then the computer boots up. I haven't done any changes to the bios or boot order.Any idea why I'm seeing this screen. I believe only once, on same screen, I saw a warning, per say, that said something in reference to a prob with the hard drive.Running Windows xp/sp2, Intel Pentium 4, 3.00gigahertz, 2048mg of ram, which was just added a few weeks ago....took out 2 512's and added 2, 1g's.any thoughts or opinions welcome.Janice

So i managed to fix the NTLDR problem with the help of some people on here (sorry i forgot your name, thanks though). But as always i get another problem, i swear thats what computers were designed for, to make you get grey hair quicker, anyway to the point!

The strange thing is my computer works fine, no problem at all! So why am i asking for help, well its because of this:-

Everytime i boot up my computer i get no beep from the POST test, so that indicates a problem to me! Then it goes ''intiaizling Intel boot agent version 2.2 press ctrl + s to enter'' well i just leave it and carry on as normal, then it goes to a blank screen for 30 seconds then it loads fine!

But sometimes it also gives me this mumbo-jumbo:-

RPL-ROM-ADR: 00D0 B716 7F1D

RPL-ROM-FFC: (then it goes from 1-200)

So instead of being lazy i researched it, and from the results i got it indicates that it is trying to boot from another computer on the network or something like that, not to sure! So it suggests to go into the BIOS!

But the problem is i can't get into the BIOS it doesn't say press so and so on the boot screen, it only shows me the Intel agent thingy!

So although my computer boots up, it could be healthier, i would appreciate any help?

Answer:Intel boot agent/ RPL-ROM

I don't know if this is a question for the Win2K forum or the Linux one...but here goes...

I have an older, hand-me-down, Compaq Armada laptop with Win2K loaded on it. However, the drive was partitioned to dual boot Mandrake. The W2K Disk managment tool shows 3 additional partitions besides the NTFS drive.

I would like to get rid of those partitions & Mandrake (I have a new version of SuSe on my other computer now) to give that little laptop more hard drive space, but I don't want to destroy the exisiting W2K setup. (I know there are no guarantees, but would like to make that my goal, at least)

The disk managment tool seems to do a pretty good job of re-partitioning and formatting of partitions (so far), but I don't know how to deal with the INTEL Boot Agent. If I take Mandrake off and let W2K format those partitions to NTFS, will it also get rid of the boot agent? Or do I need to uninstall that myself? There seems little point in having it when there are no longer two OSs on that computer.

Any ideas, or advice of how to do this? (Thanks ahead of time :O) OldLadyWho

From another pc if possible.

Download Ubuntu Live CD ISO image and burn the ISO image to a cd using Imgburn (how to burn an ISO image using Imgburn). With the newly burned cd boot with it then select "Try Ubuntu" not "Install Ubuntu" access the Windows partition or what ever partition or hdd you which to backup files from by going to the panel on top, select "Go" click on "Computer". Select the partition, or Hard drive then directories, and files you wish to back up, Backup the files to DVD, an external hard drive or thumb drive(s).

Reboot or turn on the machine. As soon as you see your machine's name logo splash screen keep tapping F8. Go to "Advanced Options" or "Repair Computer" Select your language then "Repair Your Computer" An installation of Windows should be detected after that select "Next"

If that does not fix the issue. Do the same as before go to Next again go to command prompt type in

Okay so the other day, my grandpa called me, telling me that he had a gift- A laptop. Upon receiving it, i realized that it was a fairly old Toshiba Satellite laptop (A15-S129) from the Philippines. After a week or so, i realized that it was still only XP with service pack 2, so i went up to microsoft update, and started trying to update it. Then i got into a bunch of junk about it being non-genuine Windows, because it did not match the region it was currently in (usa). So i abandoned my quest to update drivers and such, and accepted it. Then today, i started getting messages from the comp as it restarted a few times, warning me that it was in danger because it wasn't genuine.
Now, it won't start up.. Instead, I get this message:

Answer:initializing intel (R) Boot Agent GE v1.2.50 pxe build wf2.0

Hi chusta What you are trying to do right now is called a "PXE Boot", it's basically a boot from the network. This kind of practice isn't made for home use and is mostly used in companies/entreprises. It's what I do when I have to "push" an image on a new computer. To solve that issue, simply go in your BIOS and disable the "LAN Boot" or the "PXE Boot". Also make sure that your hard drive is the first device in the boot order. What computer brand and model do you have?

What happens when you try to uninstall in Safe Mode? Why were you unable to do that?

Just right-click the device in Device Manager and choose "Uninstall".

This has nothing to do with any Intel Boot Agent unless you are trying to boot from a network.

I have a new Portege M300, but am getting an Intel Boot Agent error message when I boot up. The error message is PXE-E53 "No boot filename received". I have installed the latest BIOS, but that did not rectify the problem. What should I do? Thanks.

Answer:M300 Intel Boot Agent problem

Hello

?Pxe-E53: No boot Filename received? it means actually only that the computer wants to start from the network card, but it does not find any server for the start.

If the LAN is set as first one in boot priority option in BIOS settings you will get this message. The ?announcement? is therefore completely normal.

Usually the announcement does not become noticeable either. It can happen just if the HDD strikes.
If the HDD is not more available or defective, the computer with PXE-E53 error stands!
It can be, however, also that "only" that the master boot record is defective (through viruses, or simply only bad luck...)!

Hi,

I've been reading other threads and posts on intel boot agents, and none them seem to be too similar to my current situation. I recently upgraded my hard drive from a hitachi 20gb ata to a hitachi 160gb ata laptop drive. Everything was working great. Just yesterday, the computer stopped after the intel boot agent (version 3.01 or something) came up on the screen, right before loading the "resuming windows" or "starting windows" white progress bar appears across the bottom of the screen. I don't know what the problem is at all.

I put my old 20gb hd in, and the machine started up properly, no problems. With my old 20gb hd in the internal slot, I attached my 160gb via USB and an external enclosure. The 160gb hd worked fine; I could access various folders. I was also able to get a DOS prompt (can't remember how, think it was after canceling the windows xp cd repair, installation) and I ran "C:windows\chkdsk" and it showed no problems. So, I know its not the hd.

I thought maybe it was an incorrect shutdown or hibernate on the 160gb hd that caused the computer to stop in the first place. However, I can't find the hiberfil.sys or the correct file to erase the hibernate data. I'm not sure if it's the BIOS or a startup/load file on the 160gb. I also don't know if loading the windows xp master cd and running a "repair on windows installation" would work and whether or not that would remove some of my pho... Read more

The PXE message is shows your machine trying to boot from a network card-perhaps because it's not finding any other bootable media....

Is your 'backup' drive recognized in BIOS? Is it the first boot device?

I fear the answer to this question as I am not as diligent in backing up my data as I should be, but I tried to create a new partition out of my c: using gparted and after about 3hrs it still had 6 hours to go so I thought something might be wrong so I cancelled it and now my computer won't boot up. I just get a black screen with a horizontal blinking cursor. I tried putting in the win7 repair disc and no windows os's show up for repair so I just had it check my HD for errors, which took a long time, then rebooted but no luck. Then I put in the win7 os disc and it said that windows os has some start up problems, try repair and reboot? So I did but again no luck. Have a deleted all my data?

What I would do is boot up from a Linux LiveCD, like Ubuntu or Mint and see if your data is still there. Linux can read/write NTFS. If so, I'd highly recommend dumping your data on to a USB stick or something. If you canceled resizing a partition you may have to reinstall Windows, but first things first, get your data.

I used gparted to realign my new solid state drive (C). When booting into Windows, it no longer opens, giving the error "0xC0000225" and "the boot selection failed because a required is inaccessible". There is no mention of a missing file.

To get Windows 7 to boot, I need to go into the boot menu, and select the second hard drive (E), or CD/DVD, after which it will boot into Windows. The C Drive realignment appears to have been successful apart from this issue.

I've tried startup repair, but it cannot find a Windows installation on the C Drive. I also tried a few things I found on the net, like bootsect and bootrec when in startup repair.

Have any of you kind people got any ideas? I'm a bit new at this, and was following what I thought were fairly simple instructions!

Thanks,

Answer:Can't boot normally after gparted realignment

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

How many times did you run Startup Repair? It may need three attempts with a reboot between each one.

I just got a new HDD so I decided to move a small Ubuntu partition off my main drive to the new drive, and resize the Vista Home Premium 32 bit partition on the main drive to fill the drive.

I did this using GParted and it all went smoothly, then I tried to boot Vista and I got this error:
http://www.betaarchive.co.uk/imageup....th.154517.jpg

I have the install DVD that came with the PC, so I booted from it and tried using startup repair and all of the commands here:
How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows
But none of them worked, I still get the same error.

Strangely, 3 times I have gone in to the boot menu (F12 at startup) and booted from the install DVD, Vista has booted instead, and I have not got the winload.exe error. It works normally, just as before the resize, I can take the install DVD out, and the size of the Vista partition is correct.
But when I try to boot from Vista again I still get the winload.exe error.

Thanks in advance for any help.

i have used gparted live cd to shrink my vista partition and deleted my windows 7 partiton now i am unable to boot ... tried start up repair .. it took time and still no boot ... now when i try to do start up repair it shows windows vista ultimate recovered ... already tried chkdsk /r took 30 min still no go ... what to do

only get a blinking cursor .

Answer:unable to boot after using gparted

Hi,

OK so you get the boot options screen - then a blinking cursor?

Boot to the system recovery options on the Vista dvd - select command prompt.

Type:

DISKPART {enter}

SEL DISK 0 {enter}

LIST PAR {enter}

Find which is the Vista partition - probably 1 - if not, use whatever number it is in the following :

SEL PAR 1 {enter}

ACTIVE {enter}

EXIT {enter}

Or you could use GParted to make sure it is set as active - right click the Vista partition and select Flag On - it should say boot next to it.

Now try the start up repair.

Hope it helps.

I converted my dynamic disk to basic. Then i used Disk Management to see my partition sequence. What can i see was my BOOT partition is lost and became unallocated which size of 200MB (the BOOT partition is located at the left side of Windows 7 partition). But i still can boot my Windows 7. So i decided to move the Windows 7 partition to the left so that there are no gap (unallocated) on the left side if Windows 7 partition using GParted. Finally, i CANNOT boot my Windows 7. I'm so desperate!
Is there any way to fix this problem? Help me..

Any suggestions, I appreciate it.
Sorry for the broken English.

Answer:Cannot boot my windows after using GParted

The bootmenu-entry points the the disk and partition where the operating system resides. but it isn't there anymore because you changed the starting sector of that partition! Fixed very easily.

Is this the error? (so does it say \Windows\system32\winload.exe)
recent hardware or software change might be the cause.”File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
Here’s a screenshot of the error, but don’t worry, we’ll fix it.

My Goal:

I have a dual boot Vista and Ubunto laptop working fine until Ubuntu complained that there was no disk space left to do anything. So, I used the GParted Live CD to shrink my C drive which has Vista on it.

My Problem:

-- I shrunk my C drive (with Vista) using GParted from 133 GM to 96 GB.

-- Then, I used my Vista Boot CP to try to boot up Vista and expecting an error from Windows (My Bios had only CD as the only boot sequence) so I could repair it.

-- Instead, I was at the "Paragon System Backup 2010" screen already doing a backup. After it was done, it brought me to another screen and prompted for "Simple Restore Wizard", "File Transfer Wizard", "Reboot the computer" or "Power off".

-- I tried the Restore wizard and it went into the "Wait while searching archives" mode. It searched my HD and came back with a "Select Archive" screen to select a *.pdf archive file (none). I have no idea where that file is if it indeed existed.

I did this same sequence numerous times.

Then, I noticed 2 things at boot Setup time:

1. Under "Memory Info", there is a NOTE saying "Due to an amount of memory being assigned for system use, Memory Available is less then Memory Installed. Note that certain operating systems may not be able to use all the available memory. None of these fields are changeable".

2. Under Boot Sequence, I had only specific my DVD as the only boot sequence.

Alright so here's the essay, and before you say it, YES I KNOW I'VE MADE A PRETTY BIG MESS OUTTA THIS, lol

So I was going to wipe my desktop HDD yesterday with HDDerase.exe ATA secure erase command, however I thought before I risked my good destop i'd wipe my Latop (Dell Latitude D630) HDD, mainly because my laptop doesn't have as many files that'd need transfering to my External HDD before the wiping. So I started by using HDDerase v4.0 and it'd get to the screen where you could choose the device you wanted to wipe and it showed this:



so after reading around and reading the SSD's only work on v3.3 of HDDerase.exe that i'd try again (BTW I wasn't sure weather my laptop had an SSD or not, but hey it can't do any harm right?, well......

Exact Same problem, different version.....
So after doing some more digging I found this: HERE

which said QUOTE "After a morning of fiddling about, I've worked out a way of performing the required secure erase function another way."

so I followed this tutorial, launch Gparted deleted all partitions, typed "hdparm --security-erase NULL /dev/sda

and got this Input/Output error



so after panicing that I'd just deleted both working partitions without even securely erasing them, I googled the problem and after a quick search I found these two threads on Gparted commands: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hdparm and http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/foru... Read more

Hello, first off I want to say that I have searched not only here on the forum but everywhere and havent found a solution, so sorry if if its a 'repost' kind of topic.
Anyway, Its the second time this started happening and i have no idea how to fix it, different SSDs too. After couple of months the boot time starts to get slower and slower ,originally being ~20seconds and now almost 2min, last time was even worse.

-Disabling apps that start with win10 have no effect whatsoever.
-Fast boot On/Off has no effect.
-SSD speed after boot is normal, no problem opening big apps etc(Benchmarks say its just as fast as anyone elses EVO 850 250gb)
-TRIM and AHCI are On.
-Intel RapidStart has no effect on boot time.
-Changing virtual memory has no effect on boot time.
-Changing NVIDIA drivers has no effect on boot time.
-RapidMode has no effect on boot time.
There are problably other things I tried that I'm not remembring right now. The problem only happens when Restarting , if I turn it completly off and on again I'm on desktop in less than 10sec.

WPA - I took 2 sets of data, they dont differ in almost anything as far as I could see. Since the file are huge i took screenshots of what i think are the relevant graphs. ( Storage and Disk Usage / Boot / UI Delay). In the UI Delay ,there seems to be some quite heavy processes ocurring,not shure what they are for.

Since it's for 30 seconds, it sounds like the time it waits before the default OS runs automatically. You might check to see if that may be it.

Skype was using 300k vs the usual 160k in my processes suddenly, so after some troubleshooting I uninstalled it, assuming a reinstall would solve the issue.

I still don't know if this ultimately screwed me over or not, but that's what I did. I didn't delete everything because I started having second thoughts, though.

Answer:PXE-E53 No boot filename received

This usually occurs if the system cannot recognise C:, it defaults to the network adapter.

To change the boot priority you need to enter BIOS at power-up, before it gets to Windows.

The key should be shown momentarily in the boot process, common ones are F2, or DEL.

Answer:PXE E-53:No boot filename received

Hi there!

It seems like your computer is not able to boot to your hard drive and was attempting to boot to your laptop's network adapter. The weird messages you're getting are just your computer trying to start up using different ways (the hard drive, the cd drive, and the network). The PXE errors you're getting are actually normal; the part about "Disk boot failure" is the concerning part and could indicate your hard drive has failed.

Have you been having any trouble or strange error messages recently? It is possible the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.

How comfortable would you be with downloading a boot disk and trying to run a diagnostic on your laptop?

If you don't feel comfortable with troubleshooting, you may want to contact Acer to see if they have an authorized repair facility or bring it to a local computer repair shop (Best Buy, etc.) to have them replace the hard drive for you.

It's trying to boot off the network, which means either the hard disk is not the first in the boot priority or it is corrupted or broken.Check the BIOS settings to see 1. if the hard disk is being recognized and 2. if it is the first device in the boot order.

Lately, my Gateway is continually "crashing". I will be in the middle of doing something when the screen goes black and I get a message saying: "PXE E53 - No boot filename received". It often takes several attempts at restarting the computer before I finally get everything back up and running and it is SLUGGISH. We recently had a memory card installed and Gateway assured us we had "plenty of memory". What could be going on? Also, I am getting programs that automatically boot up when I restart that I don't want to because it makes the start up process all the more sluggish.

I need some serious help here. I left my computer on like I always do to go and make some food and whatever, but when I came back this black and white screen was up and this is what it said:

PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-MOF: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM
Operating system not found
I don't know what the hell happened or what any of this means. The system was just idling and was NOT doing anything other than keeping FireFox open for me, with some Youtube videos and Facebook up.

Anyway, I did the only thing I could think to do because I had thought this might be some kind of sick attack to breach through my network (it has happened to me before), and so I did a hard shut down and when the system started back up, there wasn't a whisper of a problem after that. Just trying to make sense of this... BSODs I am used too, but this is an entirely different beast altogether and it makes absolutely NO SENSE given that the system wasn't doing anything with files or otherwise at the time of this incident.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

Answer:PXE-E53: No boot filename received???

Hi there,

The screen you described sounds like the screen you see when the system reboots, "Boot from Network" is enabled in the BIOS, and no CD/USB drive/Hard drive is set to boot before it, or else none is found.

For now, I'd pass it off as a random fluke. Perhaps a glitch from the power company? If you're concerned, you might run some hardware diagnostics, namely the three Prime95 tests and Memtest86.

Hello.

I recently got this problem on my oldest PC, and it's seemingly come out of nowhere. There has been no tempering with it as far as I know, either through hardware or software.

The computer will begin to boot, and then will hit the error:
PXE-53: No boot filename received

and then
DISK BOOT FAILURE etc etc
and hang there.

Installed I have windows XP SP2.
The boot order is Floppy, CDROM, and then HDD-0.
I feel this is a bit uneccesary considering that there is no CDROM drive or Floppy Drive installed.

There are 3 other HDD options in the booup menu (for exmaple I can set boot order to be HDD-0, HDD-1, HDD-3), but if I set any of those to boot (for example Floppy, CDROM, HDD-3), then it goes straight to the "DISK BOOT FAILURE" error message and skips the PXE error. I don't know if this is significant. If this is unclear please let me know so I can clarify what i mena here.

I have also found that apparantly this PXE error means that the PC is trying to boot through LAN. This is confusing and I know for a fact that I haven't changed anything in the BIOS to make it do so, and noone else has the technical know-how to do this. That being said, I looked through the BIOS and found nothing on LAN.

Thanks ahead.

Answer:PXE-53: No boot filename received

The PXE error is indeed related to booting from the network card in the system.

The computer tries to boot from the network card (what you refer to as "boot from LAN") because there is no boot code found in any other location and boot from network card is the only location left for it to try. This usually indicates that the Windows installation is either damaged or the hard drive has failed.

Test the hard drive with the drive maker's diagnostic software for DOS. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

If the hard drive passes the tests, you go ahead and re-install Windows on it.

I am running vista home premium and have had no problem booting until this morning when i got an error saying PXE-E53: No boot filename received. I am worried that my harddrive got fried or corrupted somehow so any help in figuring this out will be greatly appreciated
 

Answer:Getting a PXE-E53: No boot filename received please help

Welcome to TSG!

The PXE-E53 message is from an attempt to boot from the Network, usually the last option in the boot order.

Boot into the BIOS and check the boot order, make sure the hard drive is still listed, and that the BIOS can still see it.
If not, open the case and check the cables, both end of the data cable, and the power cable.

If you have access to another system, you can try connecting the drive to it to see if it's seen. If not, then it's likely dead.

Howdy,

I'm having some serious issues with my alienware desktop. Its a decently old computer but hasn't provided me with many problems in the past. Recently, however, I had to transport the computer 4 hours to my new apartment. It was working fine literally yesterday, but after the drive I set it back up and it stopped working.

When I try and boot it, it goes through the BIOS as usual but when it gets to the graphics card boot agent it fails abd guves me a PSX check cable error and fails to even launch windows. I tried different graphics cards, HDD's and even sata cables but nothing helped. Is it a problem with a different cable or perhaps the motherboard? Please help, I need this computer for classes and for work.

I also tried changing the boot priorities in the BIOS but that didnt do anything. . .

Thanks,
Slappy
 

Answer:Boot issues with NVidia boot agent

Nvidia boot agent is part of the bios on boards with an nvidia chipset.
PXE error means the computer is trying to boot from the network because
it is not finding a bootable hard drive.
Nothing to do with the graphics.
Make sure the hard drive is actually being detected in the bios and the hard drive
that you are using has windows installed on it.
Check your sata and IDE settings in the bios to make sure the proper
channels are enabled.
A bad CMOS battery may also be an issue for older computers.
That is the small battery on the motherboard.

We bought a pc, pre-loaded with Vista.

Windows 98 did not load properly. Insert disk and press enter.

It re-started, then showed this message:

PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-M0F:Exiting PXE ROM.

What should I do?
 

Answer:Solved: PXE-E53: No boot filename received

Try entering BIOS setup and checking the boot order. It appears that the machine is trying to boot from the network. Make sure that the hard drive has boot priority over the network.

Check the time, too. If the time setting is wrong, the battery may be dying and that may be why the machine lost its settings.

I've been having recent issues with my computer (Windows XP) freezing very frequently - within 10 minutes or so of starting up usually - and have run several virus scans, etc., without really finding anything.

Some further troubleshooting made me think it might be a memory issue, and since this is a somewhat old computer and only has 1GB RAM (1x 1GB) I picked up another 1GB stick (compatible with my motherboard according to crucial.com). I put the new memory stick in, plugged my computer back in, turned it on, and was greeted by that message, "PXE-E53: No Boot Filename Received," followed by a message about the client MAC address and GUID, and then finally, "PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent," "No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key."

Took the new memory stick out, tried to boot up again, same result. I did search around and found a couple of people with similar or the same errors but their situations seem a bit different and largely unresolved.

Any suggestions/help on how to resolve this or really on why the computer might be freezing (can move the mouse but everything else is essentially locked up, can't click anything) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:How to install Everything in new upgraded 750gb hdd from 250gb

The recovery discs that come with preloaded systems usually require the HD currently in the machine to be exactly the same as the one that was in the unit when sold. I would contact the maker or check their online support. Perhaps you can get a discounted upgrade to Windows 7. Or you may be able to install Windows 7 for evaluation purposes using an install image. You may want to check out Windows 7 Help Forums for guidance. The evaluation period is plenty of time to determine everything works.

I've got a weird situation on my hands, and I'll try to keep it brief and relevant. Trying to help a friend format his computer and it is a Emachine t3516, which doesn't come with the full version of xp, it only allows you to "recover the computer back to its factory condition."

I had never formatted a computer like this and ended up screwing it up. So i had to find another copy of windows xp. The corrupted recovery partition was on the C partition and the new partition I created for the fresh Windows XP install was E. I got Windows XP up and running on E and decided I would try to format the corrupted recovery partition. Now when I try to start the computer it gives me a PXE-E53 boot filename not found error.

I have tried the bootcfg rebuild suggestion mentioned in a previous post and that failed. Also, the computer does not have a floppy drive in the event that i wanted to use a boot floppy disk. What can I do to fix this mess?

Answer:Weird problem with boot filename not being found

Boot off of the XP CD. Delete both partitions and create one large partition. Format the partition NTFS, Install Windows on the newly created partition. Or after formatting the partition boot off of the Recovery CD and install on the newly formatted partition which will have all the drivers you need for that machine.

Answer:upgraded ram,will not boot into XP

Try running a program like MEMTEST86+http://www.memtest.org/My guess is either something is wrong with one of the memory sticks or the memory controller doesn't support your RAM module for some reason, such as a non-standard "low density" memory module or the wrong speed. When Windows tries to access the additional memory, it crashes. DOS doesn't have this problem since it doesn't normally try to access memory above 640k, and IIRC correctly even the best DOS extenders can't access more than 256 MB or so.

Hi there, not been round for a while.

A quick question regarding RAM upgrades.

I have just added 1Gb of RAM to my desktop PC, and now it won't boot up.

I also removed the heatsink from the CPU as it was clogged up with dust and replaced it.

I'm guessing I might have damaged the CPU in some way, although I was very careful about handling it.

I've tried removing the new RAM in case that was the problem but still no results.

Slightly worried as I can't really afford to replace it at the moment, and it has a lot of work on it, both mine and my parents.

Anyone have any suggestions about how to identify the problem and solve it?

Cheers.

hi beagle,

try fixing the master boot record and see if that helps at all. you will need to put the windows xp cd in the cdrom and boot off the windows xp cd. but first you will need to go into the bios and change the first boot device to cdrom. save the bios settings and exit the bios.

the computer should boot to the windows xp cd and then on the main console, choose repair. it will ask you for an admin password but just press enter if you dont have one and it will skip the process.

then on the C: type in "fixmbr" and see if that helps. can you get into safe mode? in order to get into safe mode, at bootup you will need to keep on pressing F8. see if safe mode works.

Prompts 'Power down and connect power to graphics card'.5) Connect power to NEW GPU, flashed "Lenovo" then 3 intermittent beeps, then goes black screen.I ploughed through plenty of threads on this issue, tried most of the suggested methods including, going into BIOS to switch to Legacy, boot with PCI-e option, off safe boot. It all doesn't work.My question now is, Is GTX950 not compatible with k430 motherboard (CIZ75M)?Will changing a motherboard help? I would like to keep my processor which happens to be LGA1155, so I'll have t purchase something thats compatible to that, probably H77 or Z77. What else could be the problem? Please help. 













Solved!

Answer:Upgraded PSU and GPU - now K430 won't boot up

So I bought and installed a new MOBO (H77) with the new GPU, it still refused to boot.SOLUTION:Unplug HDD, plug in thumbdrive with Windows 10 installer. Tada. It loads. Get an extra HDD or in my case, i had a new SSD to install windows.For people who upgraded GPU without MOBO, you can try this method too.Problem is probably with the old drivers and OS in old HDD.  Good luck.

I just upgraded from an ancient Athlon 850 to an ECS RS400-A motherboard, and Intel P4 640 CPU. When I try to boot my system, I get a "Blue Screen of Death" telling me that Windows has detected an error and is shutting down. It told me to run chkdsk on my drives (which I did by hooking them up to another system, no issues). What should I do?

Note, I did not reformat my drive prior to upgrading. Should I have?
 

Answer:Upgraded MoBo and CPU, now Win XP won't boot! HELP!!!

Hello and Welcome to Techspot!

You can try to run a windows repair on your system. It may fix you up.

If not, then yes you will have to reformat.

Good luck!

I finally took the plunge and upgraded to Windows XP Pro almost two weeks ago. The upgrade from 2000 Pro did not go smoothly and I ended up having to do a repair install. Things are working fine now, but when I start up the computer, I get a Novell Net Ready Firmware boot screen. I've checked my BIOS repeatedly (latest version) and Boot from LAN is disabled. I also have Try Other Boot Devices set to No, and my NIC is nowhere in the boot order. How do I fix this? I can boot into Windows okay, I just have several extra unneeded seconds.
 

Answer:Upgraded to XP, can't disable LAN boot

Did you overrite the last OS or install with the uninstall option?

PIII 800MHz, 512 Ram, A-Trend ATA-V931-CX1 Mobo.

I was upgrading my friend to XP, but the install kept hanging at the same point when "15 minutes remain". The mouse would freeze and everything. So, I removed the HD and used it as the primary in one of my other computers and finished the installation. I configured the OS as instructed, rebooted, scaned for viruses/malware, performed a diskcheck and defragmented. Everything was fine.

When I returned the HD back to the original Mobo, BIOS would recognize it, but I kept getting the "windows did not start up properly last time... choose how you want to start" (with safe mode options, etc.). No matter what I choose, I see a brief "blue screen" flash with some error message, and the system restarts immediately. I have tried the "pause/break" key with no luck. I am not sure what the error is, but the system will NOT boot. I even tried to boot the system with my HD from another working computer.

The Mobo and HD worked fine with Win98.
The HD worked fine with XP on another Mobo.
Any XP loaded HD will NOT boot on the Mobo.

So, I thought to flash BIOS. Maybe it needs a newer version. However, it seems that A-Trend has gone out of business or something, because they have no website. I can't find a BIOS or Manual for the Mobo, despite my hours of searching.

I even tried disconnecting all PCI cards and drives except for the video card, and boot HD. I don't think there is a conflict ther... Read more

IBM, Pentium II, 300GL model.  I added another DIMM, after being certain to buy the right kind.  The computer starts to boot up, but suddenly turns off.  I removed the new chip, but the same behavior continues.  Nothing shows on the screen.  Can't get to BIOS, because it never gets that far.  Won't boot from a floppy either (so I don't think it's the hard drive).  It seems clear that the new memory was at fault, but what do I do next?Worse yet -- it's my wife's computer!  Help!!

Answer:upgraded memory, now won't boot

Keep the memory out - reset the BIOS.  Will probably work unless something really nasty has happened.Visit http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000235.htm for info on resetting the BIOS.
