When I plug in cable modem into network card, then apear problem when I restart windows, I get a message on black screen that DHCP server trying something... when I press esc, then system write that "Network boot canceled by keystroke" and than windows starts normaly.
I just want to eliminate that "network boot". I suppose that I should setting something in bios, but I disable network boot and it apears again.
Can anyone help?

Thanks
Nikola

Have a look at your "boot order" in your BIOS. It sounds like your system is trying to "boot from network" before trying the "local disk".

Worth a shot,

Does it still try to boot from network each time?

What type network card do you have? ( manufacturer )

Sometimes...a system will default to network boot option when the CMOS battery is running down.

Sometimes...the system will act very strangely because the CMOS battery is running down and needs to be changed.
