    I was getting a error when I booted up my computer. it would say
    something like

    Boot Failure ....

    pxe-e53 no boot filename received pxe-m0f: exiting pxe rom

    it said some other stuff, and I found it was booting first from my DVDS
    then my external had drive. I found the solution by unpluging the usb
    hard drive and my computer booted fine.

    Why would this do this? I had always had my external USB hard drive
    pluged in while rebooting or booting up. It never did that before.

    So once I unpluged my External hard drive before i turned my computer
    on it booted correctly. Is this anything I should be concerned about or
    is this just some little Vista error?

    Thanks in advance for any responses

  2. A PXE boot is a network boot - your computer is trying to start from a
    network server and not finding one. It looks like you need to go into your
    computer BIOS configuration and verify/change the boot sequence.
