Make sure your bios Setup Boot Order or similar settings are set right.

If they are, remove the AC adapter, remove the battery, and try removing and re-installing the hard drive.

"all that happened when I tried to to change a 40 GB hdd with a 80GB one"

There's your answer. The HDD isn't being detected.

Recheck that your connection to the hard drive is correct. Many bios allow a way to discover a new hard drive. Then of course you need to have an OS on it.

I got "pxe-mof exiting Broadcom pxe rom" on my Alienware.
A terrible day evening until I remembered I had removed a 1GB Compact Flash-card during the last shut down of the PC.
I simply put the Flash-card back in the card reader and restarted the PC.
Yeah! Back in business.

Huh ?

Your hard drive may be failing or dead and that's why you're getting this error, but it's extremely unlikely there's anything wrong with "the motherboard chip set for hdd" whatever that is.

Thanks for the thanks.

I had a similar problem. But I discovered that in BIOS the hdd was disabled. I fixed that, and it works.
