    Product Name: 2465CT0
    BIOS Version: G3ET96WW (2.56)
    Intel Core i3-3110M
    750GB WDC WD7500BPVT-60HXZT3 5400 rpm
    PCI LAN: Realtek PXE B0C D00
    2x Hynix/Hyundai 2GB HMT325S6CFR8C-PC

    I just clean installed Ubuntu 15.04 yesterday.
    Today, I planned to clean install Windows 10 x86.
    But I always enter the boot menu screen, and when I choose either the hard drive or the bootable USB, it always shows a black screen with a cursor on the leftmost part for almost a second, then returns to the boot menu.
    When I choose PCI LAN: Realtek PXE B0C D00, it says
    "Media test failure, check cable
    Exiting PXE ROM"

    What should I do?

    Battery out, unplug power cable, hold power button for 30-40 seconds, plug in charger ONLY, try booting.

    Maybe also reset your BIOS.

    Can it boot without to enter the boot menu by changing the boot priority at the BIOS setup itself?

    You can load setup defaults @BIOS save and exit to reset the BIOS to defaults...
