Error 22

Other times it will say PXE- MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.

it simply won't boot from any sort of disc. IBM support are the dumbest people in the universe, I know nothing about Linux. I have almost all windows installation disk, but it will not recognize it on boot even though I change the boot sequence for cdrom to be 1st 2nd and 3rd. OR 1st cdrom 2nd Lan & 3rd hard disc

is there any way i can install os/boot his computer from mine or do some sort of ghost install

I don't know where else to turn, please help!
