What are you seeing?
The following errors display when your Intel® Desktop Board starts:
- PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable.
- PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Why are you seeing it?
PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) is a boot environment that allows the Intel Desktop Board to boot up using a network interface, instead of booting from an installed hard drive. You can enable or disable PXE boot in the BIOS.
If PXE Boot is enabled in BIOS, the PXE-E61 and PXE-M0F errors can happen when both of these are true:
- A bootable hard drive is not detected.
- A network cable is not connected to the Intel Desktop Board.

If you do want to boot to a network, check that the network cable connection is working properly.
