Sounds like your boot file is missing.You could have a look inside the iboot cd to see what kexts and boot file it uses and copy them back to your mac hd via kext helper and kext utility.Make sure you have a boot file in the root of your drive.Use (show all files) to see hidden files. Iboot uses cdboot so you may need to get a boot loader from kexts.com, Backup any kexts in your extra folder if you have one to use if you need them.I always make a backup of the drive using carbon copy so i can restore if i get in to problems.

try booting -v to see the exact error.You may have a chance of tracking down the problem then.

You need to check your hard drives in your bios. This is nothing to do with osx. The computer is trying to boot from your lan cable for a network boot as it can not see any other device to boot from.
You may have to check that you have your hd as first boot or that they are getting power.
You should be able to see your hard disks in the bios. If not then you may have a bad hd or a cable has come loose.
