how to access hard disk with linux livecd and pxe-e61 error
I'm trying to recover files from my hard disk. I've been downloading a lot of livecds and i read somewhere that Slax mounts your hard drive automatically so that's what I'm using right now. I found an hda directory in the mnt directory already but it doesn't seem to have anything in it.
I've been trying to recover my files because it seems I'm the PXE-E61 error. This error message is shown repeatedly when i try to boot my laptop (toshiba satellite m70, in case that helps):
For realtek rtl8139(A/B/C)/RLT8130 pci fast ethernet controller v 2.11 (001205
Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable
Pxe-M0F: exiting PXE rom
Does this have anything to do with it? Is it even possible to recover my files when I have this error?
I haven't used Linux before so there are no Linux partitions. The only OS that I've been using is Windows XP.
I've also tried removing and replacing the battery and the hard disk already, crossed my fingers, but it didn't work(or maybe i just did it wrong or something).
I'm so desperate...I have a database development project due in about a week and the files are in the hard disk! can anyone help me please?
