Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
This means that your pc didn't found operating system in the drives that tried to boot from. To make it simpler:
1. Your hard disk isn't accesible by the system (solution: check the bios settings)
2. You haven't installed (or it's disconnected) a hard disk (solution: install one or check the connections)
3. You're trying to boot with a non bootable cd (solution: use a bootable one)
4. Your cd/dvd rom is not accessed by the system (solution: check the bios settings)
There are some more minnor cases but I don't have enough details for your case and I don't want to make you in panic.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.
2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.
4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.
