I just got a new computer, my friend and I put it together.
When ever i turn it on, I get a message

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

I have no idea why it's doing this. Please someone, help me figure this out

The problem is your computer is trying to boot on a network device.
Start your computer, press f2 or del, depeding on your computer. change the boot order in your bios to boot off the hard disk first.

Thank you joelbell, I am with the same problem, and at trying to set the boot option #1 to Windows Boot Manager it says Drive not present, but the drive should be there and not recognized. What can be wrong here? Shall I disable the boot option #2?
