    Hope someone can help me with this cos its driving me nuts - I have an old compaq presario desktop with an Intel Pro 100 ethernet adapter. Started getting error message PXE-E05 -Lan adapter corrupted or cannot be initialised on booting up. I have trawled the internet for solutions - I updated the BIOS recently which didnt solve the problem, have tried removing the item in safe mode, I also tried PROBOOT recently using IBAUtil.exe and just when I thought I would be able to reflash I got the following error message in DOS when using IBAUtil - "Cannot read eeprom on NIC1" - have also tried changing boot order - have disabled network boot but don't know where to go next....can you suggest a solution.
    Thanks

    PS reloading XP doesn't solve the issue either.
