Verify your boot order to DVD first and hard drive second in your bios. While you are there make sure the hard drive is recognized.

Go into the BIOS and disable the Network boot, or LAN boot, or whatever its called. That'll make sure it doesnt happen again, if the boot order happens to get changed around .

Lol, no worries. No problem; I had to deal with that error quite a bit at work for a few months actually...computer wouldn't boot at all, and figured out what the PXE-E61 error message was usually about: meant it was trying to boot off of the network (which wasn't present).
