That message is when you have your computer set to network boot. You can disable it in the bios or change the boot order to put network after hard drive. Press probably Delete when booting to get into your bios and look for Boot Order.

Just had the same thing happen, and I thought it was the motherboard. Then a tech friend removed the battery and held the power button down. Then he replaced the battery, and it booted up fine! Good luck...

 Unfortunately Xandros is a paid (yes, you have read correctly , PAID) Linux distro. You will have to pay to get a Live-USB to reinstall.
Instead you should go here
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,46097.0.html
  and follow the instructions to create your own PCLinuxOS (the one i use) Live-USB. You will need another pc for that. After booting from it all you're gonna have to do is to click on the Install icon on the desktop.

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. It looks like it is set to boot from a Network or LAN first. You want to boot from the hard drive 1st or the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

Boot sequence isn't enough. You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.

The BIOS, which handles the initial start up of your computer, cannot find your hard drive and thus cannot boot your operating system (ie, Windows). Open up your computer and confirm the power cable is firmly connected to the hard drive and that the cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard is firmly secure. If both of these check out, then try downloading this bootable CD on another computer. This CD, among other things, has a few hard drive utilities that will help further diagnose the problem. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Finally, if the utilities on this CD are unable to see the hard drive itself, then is may need to be replaced. Try testing with another hard drive or another cable to connect it to the motherboard.
