My family member booted to advanced started options and went to the section where you can boot from an NIC Card and booted, has this messed up the computer and factory image file? How do I know I'm in nic mode after booting, I want to know if nic boot modifed the computer in any way.

NIC booting ie PXE didn't modify your system.  PXE is a way in the enterprise area to make imaging easier.  If the pxe service is offered on your network, it takes the place of the installation media (dvd, usb).

When you chose nic booting, your nic card said 'hello is there a pxe system here,'  nope okay, booting windows normally.

 

Check out Windows deployment service if you're interested.
