Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
Your PC is trying to boot from your ethernet port(internet). It is trying to see if it can boot to that before it boots to your Hard Drive. It is normally used in businesses that have PC's that boot from a Server on the Network. Home users don't usually use PXE.
To change this go into your BIOS.(F2, or F12, or DELETE, or some key when you first turn the PC on) And you should see something called boot order, change the order to boot from the Hard Drive FIRST, CD Drive SECOND, and PXE THIRD.
Or you could turn the PXE off, you should find something in your BIOS like "Onboard Devices" and it should show "Ethernet" or "Network" as an option with choices like "ON w/ PXE", "ON", and "OFF". Change it to just "ON". And you should be fine. If you turn it "OFF" then you won't be able to use the ethernet(internet) port at all. Just set it to "ON".
Not a big deal, if it can't boot from the Network it will go to the next bootable device, which is probably your Hard Drive. It won't hurt you or your PC; it just takes an extra few seconds for it to boot to Windows instead of the Network.
