Windows 7: PXE-M0F boot disk error

25 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Edition x64
PXE-M0F boot disk error

Last night, while trying to install the update for Magellan Communicator, my Acer Aspire 5532 froze. When I did a hard reset, I got the following message in German:

"Der Bootsektor diesen Diskette wirde neu erstellt. Benutzen Sie den DOS-Befehl SYS um diese Diskette bootfähig zu Machen!

Bitte legen Sie nun eine System diskette ins Laufwek und drücken Sie eine Taste."

Which, when I use Google Translate, seems to mean "The boot sector of this disk is being rebuilt. Use the DOS SYS command in order to make this disk bootable! Now put a system into the diskette drive and press a button."

Any time I hit a key while that message is displayed, I get the following:

"Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)

Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

for Atheros PCIE Ehthernet Controller v2.0.0.9 (05/08/09)

Check cable connection!

PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE-ROM.

No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key."

I'm on Windows 7 Home Edition, 64 bit. I don't know my ROM or my RAM. My laptop didn't come with a boot disk. Any ideas on how I can get it back running again!?
