    When using F2/F12 do you see an option for "last known good configuration"? If so select that and follow instructions and then report back with your results.

    If it is referring to PXE, that might mean the primary boot device is set to a network location. Have you checked the bios and made sure the primary is set as the correct hard drive in case of a Legacy install or a Windows Boot Manager in cases of a UEFI install. A boot device menu should show your options, so see if one of the options is listed and select it.
