I have a Gateway m-1617 laptop. I recently tried installing ubuntu within Windows, it was attempting to do something with my partitions then canceled itself, and now I am unable to load either operating system. I have tried putting in OS CDs but they will not boot from start-up.
This is the error I receive.
Intel Base-Code, PXE-2.1 (build 083)

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Operating System not found
I know I have a D: recovery but am unable to access it. I have tried hitting the F-keys. I am certain the hard disk is fine but something got lost in this partition nonsense.
