When booting up a PC with Windows 2000 the following error message is received:

DHCP MAC ADDR:00 C0 4F 7J 55 BA
DHCP .......PXE-MOF:EXITING PXE

F1 TO RETRY BOOT

But when f1 is tried reboot does not work, machine has to be turned off from the cpu and restarted.

What does this error mean?

Make sure all is well connected inside the pc. Sometimes it happens, for example, the hard disk isn't well connected (or has the worng cable connected).

It is not an "error" it is a message that the system tries to boot from the NIC instead of disk. So, either you have faulty hardware (Disk, cable, controller) or you have changed the boot order in BIOS to try network and not disk, or you have trashed the contents of the disk.

Actually I'm just taking your advice to our actual IT area.  The computer itself is one of the oldest in our office and we are trying to win the war about new computers and your explanation that the computer could have some faulty hardware is just helping us along.  We are going to let IT decide if they want to address.  

The user said when she got the message before and had someone from IT come over, they said it wasn't getting enough air and just moved her CPU around.
