    Missing operating system (Dell Mini 10v + Moblin) HELP!


    I had Moblin on my Mini 10v, but wanted the Ubuntu Moblin Remix instead, because it has more drivers. But when I was burning a IMG to my USB, I typed "sda" instead of "sdc", which resulted with this message on startup:

    "Missing operating system.

    Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)
    Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

    This product blah blah blah patents blah blah

    For Realtek KTL8101E/8102E(L)/8103E(L) PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.13 (081016)

    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM."

    Then it does nothing but beep when I type anything. Even if I have a bootable USB in the 10v, it jumps straight to this screen after I've chose to boot it. So I can't install a new OS.

    All I really want to do now is to install XP or something. I would love if someone could help me?

    You don;t need to install that operating system. The link is just to give you a idea on what to do. Good Luck with it.

    Edit: I don't know if this applies for you
