I dont think there is a boot disk for the actual board unless your talking about the firmware of the Bios. Boot disk only work with software. The difference between software and firmware is one is in RAM (random access memory) the other in ROM (Read only memory)The firmware is burned into the board the software is installed into a hard-drive. Hence the boot disk. Could you explain a bit more as to the problem on the Computer....if it is going the problem will not be on the board it will be in the software unless the Computer is not going at all. Please verify this????

I installed a new cpu and now computer will not boot. I thought the processor might be bad so I returned and got a new one. This was not the problem since the new one does nto work and original processor...

Are you sure the main board is capable of taking the new processor speed. There might be a jumper on the board to switch processor speed or could be a Bios setting. What exactly happens with the new processor installed do you get any post beeps at all if so how many. Double check to make sure there are not bent pins on the processor if it has any pins. What kind of Pc is it you can usually go to the manufacture web site to the drivers section and see if there are any Bios updates if there are you can save the bios to some type of disk then boot from the disk and the Bios flash is automated and run by itself.

Hope this helps some

Get a boot disk and try booting using disk. If it boots the mother board works. If you boot to a:\ prompt then type dir C:\. If your hard drive is working you should see a list of files. if not replace hard drive and load new OS.
