System was working great and then the next day came back and tried to boot up and I get this on boot up:

MBA Initialize press ctrl alt b to configure.
client mac address - 00476D96B2F GUID 44454C4C-4D00-1051-8031-B6C04F3831
DHCP.....with a spinning curser.
Then it say press F1 to reboot or F2 to enter set up.

Dell 4400 or 4600 can't remember.

I go into the bios and cd-rom and drives are not reconized. There is no option to reset to original config.
Ay thoughts???
Thanks

cradl,

It sounds as if your system it trying to boot to the network.
Have you made any changes in the BIOS?

No I have not. An I don't understand it because it was fine one day and the next it won't boot, haven't ran across this one before.. Any suggestions? Looked for factory default in bios and could not find it.
