My previous hard drive needed to be replaced.  I installed a new one and am trying to do a system factory setting restore but am getting the following message:

 

Intel Base Code

PXE- 2.1 (build 082)

PXE- E61 Mediatest Failure

                Check Cable

PXE- MOF:  Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM

[XLDR] ATA ERROR

 

I am using a Dell Inspiron E1505 on Windows XP

There are no OS discs so I need to do Crtl+ F11 to access it. 

 

New harddrive is Seagate 5400.2 120 GB.  I bought it used in working condition.

That system seems to have a recovery partition that was installed on the original hard drive as a hidden partition.

 

If you did not copy that partition...or failed to make recovery disks...I don't believe that you will be able to do a factory restore.
