I get this error when booting my mates T21:

PXE-E05 the LAN adapter's configuration has been corrupted or has not been initialized, the boot agent cannot continue.

I've tried googling for a soloution, also tried resetting BIOS defaults. Seems to be a similar thread on T60 group but no solution other then sending back to Lenovo, obviously not an option! any trouble shooting tips?

That error comes up if the hard disk is not found/defective/not inserted properly.

Thanks, it is an intermittent error, but will try reseating HDD.

Have you tried disabling the Network Boot option in BIOS?

No, where is that option? The error will disappear then raise it's ugly head again some time later.
