    Its not too big of a deal. It only adds 2seconds to boot up but it says that there is an error with the PCIE Ethernet Controller and to "Check Cable Connection." I installed the Atheros Driver to no avail. I just reformatted my drive to start fresh and get rid of small bugs like this. Any ideas on what this is a result of?


    Thanks,

    Wow. Fixed it. I had to revert the boot order which was screwed up when I had to start up from CD.

    It was trying to boot from network instead of hard drive.

    I'm having the same issue with my brother's laptop. Do you remember the boot order you had everything in for it to work?

    Just make sure network boot is last or disabled.

    I have set the network boot to last but I still get the error when it tries to start itself up.

    EDIT: I figured out how to disable the network boot instead of just giving it the last priority, and now when it starts up I get "No bootable device -- Please restart system_"

    Any idea what this means and what I should do about it?
