Perhaps your boot order is toast ? Depending on your system you can try tapping F10, F11 or F12 on startup to get the boot order screen. Once this appears choose the hard drive option to boot from , if that fails then just retry with the CD\DVD drive to boot using the Windows CD.

Never nice to see the blue screen. What is the status of your PC, does it still reboot? If so, press F8 after BIOS boot before it start windows. From there go to safe mode and execute a virus scan first.
After this shut down and restart pc again.

Either you DVD is corrupt, OR the DVD reader is not working correctly. It seems the reason the restore failed, is that it "Thinks" the Hard Drive is corrupt, too corrupt to replace the OS on...
The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.
Your computer has been configured to try to "boot" by loading the Operating System from a network-connected "boot-server". Since you're _NOT_ likely to have such a "boot-server" in your home-network, the error-messages that you get are what are _expected_ when your computer is _NOT_ connected via the Ethernet cable to a 'PXE' (Pre-Boot Execution Environment) boot-server.
Enter BIOS-setup, and disable the "boot from network" option.
There are two things that could be a problem. The BIOS settings are corrupted, or the hard drive system has a problem. In order to fix the BIOS problem, at boot up you'd hit F2 (or whatever key is required to enter setup). Get some paper and pencil and go through the BIOS pages and mark down anything that is not a default setting. Find the location to reset the BIOS to default settings and perform this action. This will overwrite your BIOS settings and remove any corrupted data. Now, when you reboot, go back into the setup and set all of the settings to the choices you marked down before.
If this does not fix your problem, your hard drive control system has a problem. It could be as simple as a ribbon cable being loose or as bad as the controller section on the motherboard has gone out. Another possibility is the hard drive has given up and needs to be replaced.
