This means you should install an Operating System.
If your notebook doesn't have a dvd drive you can install the Operating System with an external drive (dvd, USB flash drive or hard drive). and press F12 when it starts to select the booting device.
Follow the link below to find out how to create a USB flash drive bootable (also works on hard drives):

You didn't list your PC model or make, but it appears that you have enabled the network card to boot from it's rom chip. Turn that option off in your software or pcie Bios control.

system is trying to boot to a network, this is most likely due to the hard disk drive not being detected, or the windows operating system is missing.
First reset the BIOS defaults, see if the system detects the HDD in the bios and will now boot.

Run diagnostics on the hard disk drive, which I suspect it will fail.
If diags on the drive pass, they try reinstalling Windows. But I expect you'll be replacing the drive.

This is what mine says when I turn on Intel UNDI, PXE-2 . 1 (BUILD 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.5(01/22/09) Check cable connection..


You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.
Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

This message means that the computer cannot see the hard drive. Unofrtunately, this is usually caused by a failed Hard Disk drive. However, you could try removing and re-fitting the hard drive to see if this cures the problem.

Full instructions on removing and replacing the hard drive can be found here:

It sounds like the hard disk is faulty, the machine is trying to boot via the network card as it cannot find a bootable disk. You could try removing the hard drive and reseating it but the disk could be dead.

Press F2 and enter setup as it looks like your device is set to boot from the network instead of your C drive. You can change the boot order in the setup.

I have dropped my acer aspire one netbook and now the following message keeps being displayed upon reboot. Intel UNDI. PXE-2.1 (Build 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE...


By the sound of the message, your hard drive broke when you dropped it. You can open the hard drive door (should be on the bottom help in by a screw) and re-seat the connector to see if it just got loose. You will likely have to purchase a new hard drive and reinstall your operating system. If there is data you really need off the hard drive you can call a data recovery service to try and salvage what's left on the hard drive, but it will likely cost in the hundreds of dollars range.

Hope this helps, and thank you for using FixYa!

Can you access your BIOS when you turn on the computer?

Somewhere in the BIOS you may have inadvertently changed the netbook to boot from the "Network via PXE" instead of from your local hard drive.

To enter the BIOS, you must restart the PC and enter BIOS setup or BIOS features by pressing Delete or another hardware specific key on BIOS screen startup.

From there, you should encounter a series of menus that you can navigate only with the keyboard... not the mouse. With luck, you will find a boot menu option that you can correct.

Make sure you save your choices on exiting and restart your PC. With a little bit of trial and error, you should be able to coax your netbook to boot from its internal driver.
