Your system is attempting to boot from a network. You need to enter the bios and select your hd as the boot device.

Is this a new system or has it been running normally?

Post your exact specs ie if a pre-built system the brand and model. If it is a custom build the brand, model, and version of the motherboard, brand and wattage of the power supply, brand and type of ram, etc.

If it was working, I would say your system is not detecting the hard disk and attempting a boot from a network. Either the disk has failed, power to the disk has failed, or the controller on the board has failed.
If you are not comfortable troubleshooting the system, then I would take it to a shop.

if this problem happens and it occasionally boots up, can you boot from a boot CD instead, or will there still be problems when it boots because it still wont recognize the hard drive?
