I tried it by another PC client and it worked. So the thing is as you said BIOS is not supporting LAN boot. 

So it means that  the PC must boot through floppy or CD isn't it?

This is indicating that your BIOS is not supporting net boot. You may
need to use boot disk from rom-o-matic.net for your ethernet card.

If you are getting a message that there is no dhcp assignment then
BIOS is net booting but it is not getting dhcp lease.
