usually at the VERY first screen and sometimes before you can even see it press either F1, Del, F4 or esc it all depends on the MBD make. Just try one of them. To let you know IDE cables CAN become loose after time and need reseating, even if they've not been touched before.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Once you entered BIOS (with one of the keys mentioned above) you can navigate through the different menus and menu pages with your arrows and ENTER keys. In one of the menus, you will have something similar to PXE boot to LAN. Select it by clicking ENTER, then select disable with the arrow keys, press ENTER again. Once that is done, you select exit saving changes from another menu page
