I recently got a new hard drive for my Dell XPS 15 L502X after the original one died. I installed it and inserted the Reinstallation DVD, but It sends me to a PXE-E61 error and loops back to the Boot Selection. The CD Drive is at the top of the Boot Priority Order and I even disabled the Integrated NIC. That stopped the PXE screen, but now it'll just show a black screen for a few seconds then go back to the Boot Selection.
My thoughts on what it could be:
- The new hard drive is bad.
- I installed the hard drive wrong somehow.
- I need something other than the Reinstallation DVD that came with the laptop.
Any advice on what I can do is greatly appreciated as I'm at a loss now. Thank you for your time and help!
