I started up my laptop a couple of months ago and got the following message;
Check cable connection!
PXE-MOF : Exiting Intel PXE ROM
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key
This looks as if its not seeing the HDD to boot from. However, I restart and press F2 to enter the bios. Everything looks fine and the HDD model can be seen, so I just exit.
On exiting the BIOS the laptop boots normally into my OS. (which was windows 7 then)
So... for a while now i've been just entering the BIOS every time i turn on the computer and then exiting it to allow me to get into my OS.
I've since got angry at windows 7 and now run Ubuntu 12.04 instead. (love Linux now!)
The laptop is an Acer Aspire One 722 Netbook. It works great for taking away to work with me when i'm away from my proper computer, but this BIOS problem is really annoying me now and I want it to just boot to OS without having to enter the BIOS each time.
Anyone have any ideas? Do you think swapping the HDD would solve it or is there something else i've missed?
Any and all help will be appreciated, thanks.
