Hello you have to enter the bios option to change the bootup settings. Press the DEL or F2 button to enter the bios. Next select the boot option, and make the DVD drive as first boot device, harddrive second. Leave the bios by saving the settings you just made.
Place the windows disc in the dvd drive, and reboot. The screen turns black, and a small text comes on top: Press any key to boot from disk, use the space button. Now the installation will start. Remember to format the harddrive, when prompt.

Harddrive jumper is not figured correctly (in case of IDE PATA) or it may have malfunctioned.
Disconnect the PC from the mains supply, remove the cover on the system and check for any loose cable connections of hard drive. Check inside the BIOS whether the drive is listed and as the first boot device in Boot Order tab.
Note: During inspection take care to avoid touching any board component unnecessarily. Also avoid using force.
Dear friend you i think you have to operating system in to hard drive.. Please... format the IDE hard drive... if IDE hard drive is Primary hard drive then go to the BIOS, In BIOS go Boot Sequence you may see there Hard disk Priority option.. Let set Sata hard drive as first one.. Then your computer Boot from sata Harddrive... thanks...
Please do this first.. Set sata as first hard Drive from BIOS Hard disk Priority Option.. then Format IDE Hard drive..
Thanks Sumon.. i think it will solve your problem..
I would start by clearing the CMOS with the reset jumper pin on your mainboard. Then remove all the PCI cards excluding the video card; disconnect the hard drive as well. Boot the computer without the RAM and see if you still get the "F post code." If not download a copy of Ubuntu Linux and burn it to a CD.
Reinstall the RAM modules and boot to Ubuntu from the CD and run "System Memory Scan" from the Ubuntu Boot Menu. I'm guessing your RAM over-heated and is permantly damaged. Only the manufacturer knows what the error codes for your board represent; it'd email them from this support link... EPoX Support Contact
Sounds as if you need to change your cmos battery (Cr2032 on motherboard) first of all as i'ts a very cheap item to replace, then set the bios up again, then try to boot, if still no boot you may need an operating system repair.
