SOURCE: the system won't start ,however

Sounds like you may have a problem with your processor bus. Would highly recommend replacing the motherboard. It sounds like the reason the system will start with no processor is there is no communication happening in the processor bus, but when a processor is is present that communication pathway is having a problem.

SOURCE: I have a Packard Bell iMedia 2350 that uses the Gigabyte motherboard GA-K8VM800MNF. I have replaced the IDE hard disk with a sata drive. The bios does not see the hard disk and now I am trying to find

I don't think updating the bios will change anything, it's just updates for processors if you look here: Bios Update.

Motherboard Manual here

I don't know which drive you have and your's is a gigabyte board but some motherboards have a problem finding sata2 drives even though the drives are supposed to be backwards compatible. Read this asus board

Testimonial: "Thanks Stuart and all those that contributed to my post. In fact it was the jumper that is not mentioned much in manuals, that solved the problem. Most motherboards that I have worked with, seem to recognise Sata2/3 hard disks. But this one in particular did not find the hdd. When I installed the limit speed jumper 1.5GB jumper, all was well and now. Sometimes a bios upgrade does the trick, but this time it was a JUMPER :) Thanks"

Is there any way I can get a Packard Bell iMedia S3810 motherboard/BIOS to become UEFI compliant - I have a 4TB HD which I cannot currently install any OS on to...

No, the motherboard chipset will not support the newer technology. While it is true that MBR disks cannot be larger than 2TB, this does not preclude you from using a larger disk as a boot disk. You simply have to partition the drive to make the first (boot) partition 2TB or less. You can then format and install the OS to that partition. You just can't leave the full 4TB as a single drive letter, and most users wouldn't do that anyway.
