It is trying to boot off of the network. If your not setup to do this then go into the BIOS and remove the NIC from the boot list.

Is that the correct boot order? It should be booting off of the Hard drive first, before it gets to the lan card.

do you have a normal vista disk or a restore disk
if you have the normal disk boot from it and click on repair on the bottom left of the install screen

these days you have to burn one when you first receive the laptop

check the makers download page and see if they have the d/load available

if not contact them to send you one,they will probably charge a fee for it

you need the one from the manufacturer that matches your system
if you run a repair with that one it may fix or it may leave you in a worse position
