To get the SATA drive to work you'll need to go into BIOS and enable the SATA controllers on the board first. Set them to AHCI if you have the option.
Thanks my friend got that and I think I know where I was going wrong I was testing it with a cloned 64bit OS (7) drive in and I should have been more on the ball as it's probably a board that only supports 32bit gear.


I'll have to go look see

I can guarantee 100% that it supports 64 bit. All AMD processors from the first Atlon 64 all do, and that board is socket 939, so there is no question that is supports 64 bit.

Great minds stormy have just this second got off the specs site and yep you're right right up to dual core Athlons

Another thing to try is use only one RAM stick in the slot closest to the CPU.
There in BIOS where it says IDE Drive NONE, hit enter at the "none" and see if there is option to Detect and hit enter. Then arrow down to Halt On and set that to "None", F10 save and enter.
