Go into bios and make sure "network" is not listed as the first boot device, in fact set it up as,

first boot device- cdr
second boot device Hdd

If the system is trying to boot from a network and there is none present this will cause this error.

I do however think the hdd has failed if it is not recognized in bios and you will need to replace it.
