Hello my name is***** can assist you with your problem.To rectify this problem, what you will need to do is enter BIOS when the computer is starting up.You should be able to tap F10 to enter bios.What you will need to do in Bios is to ensure that the hard disk is your 1st boot device.What it is trying to do is boot from the network device.You will also need to disable PXE Boot as well. This is something you would not use most likely, it's more typical in corporate environments.That should fix your problem. If you run into any problems adjusting those settings, let me know.Thanks,Richard
