Thanks for opening this, I'm helpless.
I have a Lenovo E545 ThinkPad running Ubuntu 14.04 off of the[Samsung 840 SSD that I installed when I bought the computer. Everything as run fine until I tried to boot the other day and received the following error message:
"PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, Check cable"
At this point, the boot menu could not locate my SSD. After taking off the back, I saw that it was loose, so I reconnected and fastened it. Starting it up again, it now recognizes the SSD, but cannot boot from it, continuing to show this error message.
Things I've tried: - Change boot order - Change UEFI/Legacy booting options - Change just about everything else in the BIOS settings to try to get it to work - Restored them to defaults
Nothing has worked. Currently, I'm booted off a USB Ubuntu image. I can see my mounted SSD in my file system, but also cannot access it or any of the files that I crucially need right now (permissions not accepted as I am not the 'owner' - help?).
I've attached some screenshots in this album, can't post photos yet. If anybody can help me, I would be so very grateful to you, and would love to throw some bitcoin your way for the effort. I am really in trouble without a computer right now and need to get this sorted out as soon as possible.
Thank you for reading.
