Linux 9.04 NVIDIA PXE-E53 Disk Boot Failure


Greetings all,

My linux system was left unattended too long and went to sleep. I did not know the correct way to wake it up, so I just hit the RESET button. Opps, didn't like that.

Now, I have the system set to boot from the CD as the third choice (HD first) and I can get it running with the live CD.

I get PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-M0F: Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK and PRESS ENTER, at which point I can bring the system up using the Live CD.

I don't want to do an install because this will wipe out all my files, I think.

I have seen other posts with this error code but I'm not exactly sure what I did and how to recover.

Thanks

Ron H

What happens when you try to boot the Linux system?

Thumbs up

When I start the system up, it appears that it works correctly now.

I will marked this as resolved, though I have no idea why at this point.

Smile Most Likely a cable problem

I had re-seated the cable to the HD prior to firing up the computer and as I think about it, this why my HD was not seen.

A lesson in SW vs. HW issues.

Thanks for the assistance at any level.

Can I assume that the following is a good indication of a HD fail vis a vis v9.04?

PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-M0F: Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK and PRESS ENTER

PXE stands for Pre eXecution Environment, i.e. it's a network boot mechanism. If your computer is falling back to trying to network boot, it sounds like there's a problem with your hard drive. Can you get into your BIOS and check if the hard drive is detected normally? Is your boot order set correctly?

BTW, there's no such thing as "Linux 9.04." Are you perhaps using Ubuntu 9.04?

PXE-E53: No Boot Filename Rec'd

Thank you for the update Mr. Miller. YOu are correct and I am using Ubuntu if I catch your drift.

Most likely this is a HW issue as the system is working properly. Will mark resolved and I will stay on the Ubuntu boards, making the distinction between Linux and Ubuntu.

Thanks again for the assistance. I'll do my homework on the PXE.

Best regards,

Ron
