Skip the boot disc step for now. It's not that essential as of yet. Was your board replaced, was it repaired, or was it determined that the board is fine?

I'm assuming it was repaired I didn't get any word of what was done to it. It was sent back to me. It still had all the same numbers on it so I'm assuming that it was repaired or just sent back and not replaced.

I assume you meant to say there were no problems. Proceed to remove all but the essential hardware in step 5. Instead of booting from a floppy, there are DOS CD tools. I would recommend SeaTools for DOS and see if you can get that to start.
