This is indicating that your laptop doesn't have a boot device. Your hard drive is not working to boot the computer therefore the computer is attempting to PXE boot through the network.

You need to check the boot order in the BIOS and ensure that the hard drive is in the boot order -- probably after the DVD drive. If it is listed in the boot order, then you have a hardware problem with the disk.

As stated above - if you're lucky a simple remove and refit of the hard drive may solve the problem as it may have just come loose on its connections.
