How I got Intel UNDI PXE-2.0 error message?
While writing this article, I am in India where online eCommerce websites fighting hard to sustain among their competitors. Among them one newly established website shopclues.com had introduced 35% off on Laptop in last week. I was already planned to buy a new laptop and at the same time I had saw their advertisement regarding this great offer. After calculating and comparing the same product on other eCommerce websites and local shops, I understand that I will not get the same for that much cheap price in near future. So I finalize to purchase. Here is the details of Laptop that I had purchased from shopclues with great offer.
Model:- Dell Inspiron 3000 series
Processor:- Intel core i7 processor 5th Generation
RAM:- 8 GB
HD: 1 TB
On board Graphics:- Intel HD 5500
Dedicated Graphics:- Nvdia GetForce 840M
Price:- 41,000 Rs.[$650]
Originally the Laptop had Ubuntu as the Operating System and most of us don’t like it. In my case, it can’t be used for my educational purpose so I installed Windows 8.1 PRO on the same day I received it. I felt something bad with my choice because every time I start my Laptop, it shows Intel UNDI PXE-2.0 (build 083) bla bla bla… like error messages. Here is the error window. [Don’t worry about the person who is taking the pic. its me.]
Reason behind Intel UNDI PXE-2.0 (build 083) | Exiting PXE ROM issue
There can be many reason for this type of error window. Anyway we are discussing about the most probable reason. The reason behind this issue is your Computer is not booting from your Hard Disk Drive. When your computer have no access to get into your hard disk for booting purpose, it uses your network for boot. This may took little bit time and end up in these kind of error messages. So the primary solution for this issue is to change your Hard Disk as primary booting option instead of your network.
But many people facing the same issue after changing the Hard Disk as primary boot device. For those guyz, I have only one thing to remember. Your hard disk is going to die. If your HD is still in warranty period, go to your nearby service center and ask for a replacement.

Step1:- Go to your boot Menu. [You can see the buttons with which you can enter the boot page during the system starts up. It vary from device to device. In my case, I have F12 as the key to enter the boot page.]
Step2:- There you can see several tabs. You need to go to the “Boot” tab.
Step3:- Under boot tab, there you can see “Set Boot Priority“. Set Hard Disk as the First Boot Priority.
