Fixing a boot error

Sometimes when booting a GNU/Linux computer the following error appears:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (Build 083)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v.

Check cable connection!

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


The way I found to fix it is to plug a Live USB, launch the boot menu, and then restart the computer. It is not necessary to boot the distribution to make it work.
