No Bear just a CD but as per my previous post I think the board has eaten the biscuit as it could only boot the Ubuntu and then just freeze. The HDD was not connected so It couldn't have been it interfering with the OS.
It seems that the XP and the Ubuntu both booted and ran but the system froze soon afterwards.
Oh the memtest I downloaded it but it just would not burn image to disk, I might have to try it on the Sandy Bridge.
