Its trying to boot from a network

so a good possibility its not finding the hard drive or the BIOS settings are not set to boot from the hard drive.

You need to enter BIOS(setup)and check BIOS can see the hard drive

and the first boot device is set to either 1st DVD rom - 2nd hard drive or hard drive then DVD rom
