If I understand you well, before Windows loads, you get a notification
about the ethernet controler which is waiting for a boot data stream to come from a local server. If you don't use a client-server network setup, you'll need to
go to BIOS and change the boot options, so that your hard drive is set
as first boot device, then DVD as second boot device, then USB drive as
fourth boot device, and lastly LAN as fifth boot device.
What happens is that your PC thinks that the LAN is the primary boot device, and in corporate networks PCs get such a setup so that there's one large server feeding data to the local cubicle PCs. In some cases the server-dependancy is set to such extent that these cubicle units are just "dumb terminals". In your situation, your PC thinks it should also get boot infro from the LAN, but as your PC is not a part of a corporate network it waits in vain, and after a while it should move on to the second/third boot device, and eventually find that it has Windows installed localy and starts loading the OS.
So, to wrap up, you'll need to go to BIOS and set your local hard drive as the primary boot option. This will fix the problem only if your hard drive is OK and you've installed Windows on it.
If your hard drive is failing/gone, then your laptop may not even recognize it and therefore moves on to the next bootable device, which is usually the DVD, and then a USB drive and lastly LAN boot.
Anyway, go to BIOS, and see what is the current setup. If the hard drive is set as first boot option, then this is a good sign that you'll need a new drive.
If this was informative please give it a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS
1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive
Thanks for Choosing
