I am attempting to get a Dell Inspiron 910 with Windows 7 installed up and running again. The system was running fine yesterday, but lost the ability to connect to my wireless network suddenly, though other devices in the house were still connecting fine. I attempted to correct the issue by rebooting the system, but ran into problems. Directly after the boot graphic, I received the following messages: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM. Operating System not found Since the Inspiron has no CD-ROM drive, I created a system restore USB flash drive and booted the Windows restore. On the System Recovery Options screen, it does not list any operating systems in the selection box. I tried using the system backup and no images are found. I tried using Startup Repair. In the repair details, it identifies the root cause of the problem to be "MBR is corrupt." It took the action of a disk metadata repair, but gives me an error code of 0x45d. I've looked this up and it means I/O Device Error. I loaded up the BIOS settings and the system can see the hard drive. It's a 32mb solid state drive. I used command prompt from the system recovery disk and loaded into DISKPART. I can see the disk using LIST DISK. It shows it as 28GB size with 28GB free. However, bringing up info on the disk shows it has no partitions and no volumes. I've made several attempts to create a partition, but always receive the following error: DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the System Event Log for more information. My fear is the SSD has gone bad somehow. How might I be able to restore Windows 7 or possibly install it again? I hope I have provided enough information, but please let me know if there is anything else I need to provide. Thank you.
