Just to clarify the situation...

By setup do you mean the bios page(s); usually accessed at boot up by pressing the delete key or some other key as indicated on the screen?

Or do you mean windows boot menu?

If the former (bios pages) are you comfortable at going through a couple of simple checks - to look and see what's showing and isn't (and ought to be)?

The error message often (usually) pops up when the system can't find the hard drive or any other bootable device. As a last resort it tries for a network boot?

So you "may" have either a hard drive which has failed; or simply no-longer showing in the list of drives and bootable devices?

Incidentally - is this a laptop or a desktop: and which make and model is it?

trvlr pretty much nailed it.

What's happening is you computer is progressing thru the boot order. PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) is usually listed last & is for booting off a network. Your system isn't finding ANY bootable devices & when it gets to PXE, it isn't finding a network, therefore you get the PXE error.

✔ Best Answer
From what trvlr and riider said, I get that you
should be seeing something on your screen before the error
you quoted. Maybe the name of the BIOS manufacturer and
version number. Probably a message saying which key to
press to get into the setup program. Maybe other power on
self test (POST) info. Do you see those messages?

Were you expecting the computer to boot from the hard drive
or from some other device?

Did you change anything shortly before this problem began?
