There's a very good chance your hard drive died. <_< That's why it's looking to PXE boot from the network.

To confirm check this: In the bios, set the NIC entry to "ON (PXE off)" and remove the option of PXE boot from the boot sequence. Make sure all IDE devices are set to cable select (hard drives, CDROM, CD-RW etc) and that only those devices you have present are set to AUTO in the bios.

Sorry I'm not sure if this is considered a followup or a new topic... but I have the same problem as sabri1. Does this mean all my files are gone?
