I think you are talking about a thunderstorm with lightning strikes.

Basic safe mode does not support networking, so the Ethernet driver doesn't get loaded. It is possible that your Ethernet chip was fried by a nearby lightning strike.

Try safe mode with networking. If that fails, then it's likely that your Ethernet port is broken.

Go into the BIOS and disable the on-board Ethernet port. Try booting again, and see if it boots cleanly. If it does, then buy an Ethernet card for your computer; they are not expensive. Get a good one, with an Intel or Marvell chip, for example. Leave the motherboard Ethernet disabled, and use the network board instead.

Good luck!
