It will boot, I can ge to the BIOS, it will even load to the OS. The HDD light comes on and thats it. The only way to get it to shut down is to turn the PSU off. It's not the HDD it will even do it with no drives at all. Any ideas? Maybe some software that I can get to test the board from a bootable cd?

check the ide cable maybe its turned aroung the wrong way on the mobo. if that does not solve the problem, check your power connection on the mobo, as for checking the board with a bootable cd thats a no no. not without a HDD in the box. as for powering down. are u reffering to the shutdown command, give a little more
