    This means your mac is looking for a network drive at boot. To prevent this from happening make sure your boot drive is selected in System Preferences > Startup Disk, then press the restart button below.

    but this doesn't happen all the time, since i have my mac (9months) it has happened 3-4 times, thats why it makes me wonder, its not a constant issue, can there be something wrong with my HD?
