The most common problem for this error is either an incorrect setting in BIOS, or a bad boot device, which can be a bad hard disk drive. My suggestion is to check your BIOS settings.

I believe that this relates to either a network device being enabled for boot - or it relates to a "boot agent" (from the nVidia reference). Check the boot device order to see if it's there.
