Windows 7: Network Boot

Network Boot

If I disable Network Boot in my BIOS I get Boot Failure when I try to boot. My Boot Options are CD/DVD/Hard Disk/Removable Drive. Do I have a problem? or should Network Boot always be enabled?

First could you tell us about your system and network? and second is there a specific reason you want to dias-able network boot?

Hi Guys, on thinking about this more I realise it is a motherboard problem rather than a Windows 7 problem. I was trying to disable Network Boot to see if it would solve the problem of my num lock light staying on after I switch off my computer. I had already tried disabling Wake on Lan, but that didn't work. I have just been building a new system with an Intel board. The only slight problems I have is this light staying on, and an exclamation mark against the PCI Simple Communication Controller in Device Manager, which I think is the onboard EEEI 1394
