If you don't want remote networking - then why do you have DHCP configured? Do you want to assign a static IP to the machine?

Based on the PXE error, the problem you're getting has to do with the DHCP server not offering the NIC and IP.

My advice is to boot into rescue mode; change from DHCP to a static IP and check if you can boot the machine.


error, pxe
