Hello,

The hard drive of my Toshiba Satellite laptop crashed. I took it to geek squad and they matched me up with the new hard drive I need, How do I go about setting it all back up?...I have 2 reboot disk that my computer came with, I am pushing f2, F12, F8 repeatedly and I keep getting the same message

PXE-E61 media test failure check cable
PXE-M0F exiting PXE Rom
No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key

If I have already replaced the new hard drive and inserted the first boot disk, what do I do now?

Thank you!

Greetings,

I assume it was your crashed disk drive which was the first at the boot priority. Now you have a new one and want to restore your previous system image to the new hard drive, you must change the boot sequence in the BIOS to your CD/DVD drive and boot with your recovery CD. Refer to the following FAQ to modify the boot sequence:
