That to looks like you are trying to boot from a network.  Have you checked the boot order in your bios?  I would also disable the network boot option if you can.  Also I would move the HDD in the first boot order.

In case you have not cloned operating system, that SSD has no OS installed and so boot will fail without proper installation media.

As Drillingmachine said this message was appearing because I had no OS installed yet. There was no error!!!

 

Now that I have installed Ubuntu everything is working.

 

This was my first time installing a hard drive and I didn't know what to expect!

 

Thanks for alll the help!
