Your MBR is bad, rewrite it.

Why would the MBR be bad? The motherboard is not seeing the hard drives. So it cannot boot. Am I wrong?

No you're right. I read "disk boot failure please insert system disk and press enter," and answered. Quick reply was just too tempting.

Come on, don't be lazy.

Get the board replaced and then sell it or keep it as a backup.
