Hello and welcome to the Community,
it's not quite clear from the details you have provided exactly what you are experiencing, perhaps you could add some detail or expand on what is happening when you are trying to recover the system.
Sometimes it is useful, when recovering a system, to set the BIOS to it's default values by entering BIOS and pressing F9 and then accepting them. If the instruction supplied with your recovery discs require you to make any changes in BIOS before proceeding you should apply those changes after resetting to defaults.

As Andy as said - more information may be needed to better assist. What I understand is your "Boot Order" has changed from Hard Disk Drive (HDD) to Network Boot and is not loading windows. If this is correct there may be an issue with the HDD that is preventing it from loading correctly during BIOS hardware check procedure.
You can reset the BIOS to defalut by removing battery and AC power, then press and hold the power key for more than 10 seconds (30 seconds is reccomended) then replace battery, connect AC power and use the NOVO button to turn on the system. When prompted, enter bios, set defaults and restart.
If your computer continues to default to Network Boot, power down and then turn on using NOVO button, enter bios and navigate (search for) Boot Order. Once you have checked to make sure your HDD is listed as first boot device and not PXE or Network Boot, then look for HDD diagnostics and check the HDD for errors.
If diagnostic returns good, use a Windows Retail DVD to boot the computer, then run the repair options to see if it can restore the operating system boot files. If this fails, you may have a HDD mechanical issue that will require replacement of the HDD.
I know this is a lot of information to read thru, but answers to some of these options will tells us quite a bit about what steps are needed.
