you got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.
Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.
You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.

That message is because the laptop is trying to boot through the network. You have to change the boot order in the BIOS, and put on first place the hard drive. Press the F2 key just before turning on the laptop. You should go to the bios program. On the bios, search for the Boot tab-move with the directional keys- you should see something like this: http://slackworld.berlios.de/2007/images_vmware/vm-bios-cdrom-boot.png. Press F5/F6 to move the hard drive on top. Then press F10 key, hit "Y" and then "enter". The laptop will reboot and it should boot through the hard drive-on which you have windows. If with hard drive on top, you still get that messsage, you will have to reinstall windows-it means that the files in the hard drive are corrupted- or replace the hard drive.
