It looks like it's trying to boot from a LAN connection -- and failing when it can't find one.

Have you tried going into the BIOS setup and confirm that it has the local hard drive as the first boot option?

A reset to defaults in the BIOS should put your HDD before a PXE boot.

I hate to say it but it sounds like you may have a failed Hard Drive. Does your boot menu offer a diagnostic of any kind ??
