First of all, what the hell is MSCP? =)
And why does it suddenly boot from the network, when it previously booted from
the hard drive at the sole mention of "boot"?

Could it be the lacking AUI transceiver that's causing trouble?
BTW, does this mean that the II GPX could boot over MOP, or even TFTP?
