(I am assuming you know how to enter the bios)

In your Bios go to something akin to "boot device priority" and remove PXE
boot or LAN or NETWORK BOOT from your boot device list, or move it to the
bottom (lowest priority)

I think what might have happened is that your bios got reset to "optimised
defaults" or "failsafe defaults" and that this includes PXE boot by default.

What motherboard is this? My HP servers have PXE on by default.
