Trying to run an ibm motherboard without pov3 chip

I have several ibm motherboards which are from NETVISTA 8305 desktop computers. motherboard p/n is 88P8475. I have some with the POV3 (promise of value, p/n 25P5079) board and some with out it. All the boards work fine. If I remove the POV brd from the boards that have them, then the motherboard does not boot. I need to make these boards boot without the POV just like the other boards. The POV is some kind of security board. Also, the POV boards are not interchangeable, they only work in the motherboard they are programmed on. Any knowledge on this? The boards look identical except for a j-lead ic soldered to boards. This ic either has a 2003 sticker on it, or a 2004.

I've had a quick look a a photo of your motherboard and it looks like it supports both SATA and PATA IDE devices.

Have a look inside the tower, if you current HDD is connected via a fairly broad grey ribbon cable, its using a PATA IDE interface - the older fashioned one.

If its connected with a fairly narrow flat red coloured cable, then its a SATA interface.

Remember to set the jumper settings on your new drive to match those on your old one.
