PXE-E53: No boot filename received
I am getting this error message "PXE-E53: No boot filename received" for anything that I am doing and Windows fails to start? Please help me out? Thanks.

I was having the same issue and I have solved it now. The problem seems to be with the VLAN setup. I had created a new site server with the PXE role on the same VLAN as my desktops and it started working right away.

Thanks but that isnt working for me. Actually the hard drive died and will not spin up, it will just give some clicking sound. I purchased and installed a nw hard drive and now the problem started. Everything says to insert boot disk. I dont have one and XP came installed on my machine so I have not CD to insert. I borrowed a recovery disk from my friend but it will only get so far and says the "recovery disk isn't suitable for my model".

Well, why dont you purchase Windows XP CD, you will be able to get them at cheaper rates from people who are selling it online. You can even try to contact the hard drive manufacturer and ask them to help you to install your new hard drive.
