The most common reason for seeing this error message is because the hard drive has failed and the computer's BIOS is looking for *-anything-* else that it might be able to boot up from. It may look for a bootable floppy diskette first, then a bootable CD/DVD and then possibly a bootable USB device. If none of those are available either, it'll check to see if it can somehow bootup through the network. If that also fails, it'll throw a "PXE" error message up on the screen and simply give up. (It really doesn't have any other choice at this point).
How do you fix it? Replace the dead hard drive and install an Operating System on it.
