Do you have the Simply Mempis CD?

Do you have your BIOS configured to boot from CD first (then hard drive)?

Does booting from CD (either in "standalone demo" and/or "install/rescue" modes) work?

Hi -

The point is, you should generally be able to boot to *something* (regardless of which mobo-specific drivers you might have).

Here are a couple of links that might help:
