Hey guys i just built a new computer

Amd athlon 3700+
Xfx 7800 gt
1 gig patriot ram
Chaintech vnf4/ultra

And we formatted windows onto it and i set all of the bios settings such as boot drive and i set that to hard drive after i was done booting through cd drive for windows and then when i tried to start it up it started saying

Client Mac addr: Guid FFFFFFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFFFFFF
Dhcp...\

And i thought it was something with the internet so i unplugged the internet and then it told me to boot through system disc so i plugged it back in and it said the same thing Client mac addr: and all that stuff

Ive seen this on the school computers and i just switch the boot drive to the hard drive and everything boots up but nothing here... i dont know what to do please help.

Thanks.

You're saying that it doesn't detect a NIC when you say 'internet devices?'
