This error means that the system is trying to boot from the network. Make sure that the configuration is set correctly inside the BIOS.
When you enable the RAID go on boot order and change the priority so the raid controller is over the network boot.
Hope it helps

the error is caused by another additonal PCI express card that was put in the machine.. After removing it, was working fine.. would close the qn and reward points for suggestion

It's ok. If you found the error just close the question.
What kind of card was the one that caused the problem?

its a TP-Link Gigabit card.. actually the issue not really resolved. whenever i put this card in, the cpu would automatically try to detect from it upon bootup.. eventually would also want to use this NIC.. not sure yet what option forget to turn off probably in the BIOS.

Did you check the boot order in the bios?
There should be an option for bootable add in card and since this network card has a boot option it can go ontop of the others.
What motherboard do you have?
