Question about Computers & Internet
Go to the BIOS setup screen. Watch the info at boot time and hit the right key (F1, space bar, delete key, etc. depending)
In the BIOS, look in the boot options and take the "other devices" or "other" out of the boot sequence. Also check to see if boot from LAN is enabled. If it is, disable it. PXE is a protocol that will enable you to boot from a network drive or server. When it says that it failed, it is because it could not find an OS on the network.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

That cryptic message is coming from the computer's BIOS, which attempting to boot from a network connection since it's not finding the operating system anywhere else. (The usual boot order is CD drive first, hard drive next, finally the network. Network boot only works in an environment like a school or office where there's a server to connect to that provides the required information.)
Whatever you did to your hard drive made it unbootable. About your only option now is to reinstall your factory image. This may be a problem, though. If there was a recovery partiton on the hard drive, your partitioning operation likely deleted it as well as the boot partition. Unless you have a set of recovery discs, you'll either need to do a fresh installation of whatever version of Windows was preinstalled, or see if a recovery set is available for purchase from the manufacturer.
