BIOS limitation or BIOS capacity barrier
The BIOS limitation or BIOS capacity barrier is the computer's inability to recognize hard drive capacities larger than allowed by the hard-coded programming contained in your system BIOS.
Why can I only see 127 to 137 GBytes of my 160+ GB drive
The Windows 137GB Capacity Barrier is also known as 48-bit Logical Block Addressing Support for ATA (IDE), Serial ATA or ATAPI disc drives. The 137GB limitation does not affect SCSI interface disc drives

You need to verify the boot order. Disable (if possible) anything relating to LAN booting.
While in bios, look for a way to "load bios defaults".
If you can't do that, then you can pull the battery from the board to reset the bios.
This particular error is stubborn to resolve. It is created by a host of things.
