"Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)

Your HDD is fried, or your bios is not configured to boot to a hardrive, and only a network (which is why pxe boot fails, you have no deployment server answering the request!)

Let us know if this makes sense!

Have you ever changed the bios to alter the boot device? If no, then start looking for a new device, as your HDD has failed, and your machine cannot boot from it (if you didn't tell it to boot from another location!)
