Unhappy PSU problem

Ok, first, sorry if this thread is out of section, because this is not a Linux<->Hardware problem.

In the next image you can see my mother board, only a part, see also 2 surrounded sections one in green and one in red.

Is an Intel® Desktop Board D850GB ->

Yesterday, a friend give me an ATX Power Supply Unit but only have the connector for the red surrounded socket, there is not something for the green surrounded part.

My question is, what kind, or model, of PSU i need for my mother board? that have the tow connectors that need it.

From your MoBo's manual (and whilst I thank you for providing the link to it, I think you could have read this for yourself!), page 57:

Use only an ATX12V-compliant power suppIy with this board. ATX12V power supplies have two
additional power leads that provide required supplemental power for the Intel Pentium 4
processor and the Intel 850 chipset. Always connect both additional power supply leads of the
ATX12V power supply, otherwise the board and the processor could be damaged.

Do not use a standard ATX power supply. Doing so could damage the board and the processor.

THANKS, the PC power on with the ATX, but i keep and shut down in the grub stage. I think that thing could be important, hehehe. Now i'm at my school.

Reading a little there is ATX and ATX12V [1.x and 2.x] the 12V version has the called "Pentium 4 connection", my old PSU has it. the 2.x series has extra-pins.
