Usually it means your hard drive has crashed.
The PXE is your computer trying to connect to a network server (virtual hard drive).
Did you have any important files on the computer?

Reboot or repair harddisk


Please be a little more specific as to when you are recieving the error and word for word exactly what it says. Its hard to determine if it is a hardware or a software failure at this point. You could try booting off a windows xp disc, going into the recovery console and using the command chkdsk /p /r, it will try and locate bad sectors on the harddrive and fix them. I should let you know that harddrives are usually the first hardware component to fail in computers and have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.

Was your cd drive detected in the BIOS? Take the laptop back apart and double check your connections.

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.
