Hey, I have pretty much the same problem as this one. I'm getting the message:

For Realtek RTL8110S/8169S Gigabit Ethernet Controller v1.01 (030820)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

I've looked in the boot priorities list in BIOS but the realtek option was already disabled, and there was no USB boot option. Also, there isn't an HDD boot option.
My priorities list looks like this:

1st- Floppy:1.44 MB 3 1/2
2nd- Disabled

Try Other Boot Devices- Yes

I've tried disabling the floppy, disabling everything, setting 'try other boot devices' to no, and even enabling the Realtek option, which is called
BBS-0(Network):Realtek Boot Agent.

Do you have any idea what I should do? I'm getting really worried that my hard disk's contents have been randomly obliterated. Everything was fine last night :tazz:

EDIT: Started new topic.
