Depending on the size of the hard drive, formatting can take quite a while.

What do you mean burnt heat damage is a very bad sign anything with scorch marks is more or less fried usually.

Just to pipe in, if you saw burn marks on the PROCESSOR, then why did you replace only the MOTHEBOARD? You should replace both, because they are both most likely fried and useless now.
