You have been at it for a long session and must be fairly P off by now. I will be about for the next 3 hours, I would more than understand if you wanted a break and start refreshed tomorrow.

OD must have been good for the OS install. Checks.
Seen in BIOS and as first boot.
Seen in device manage, any flags?
Will the Puppy CD boot.
See if there is a tool on the UBCD to test the OD.

Try the MB disc in another computer.
Change the SATA port for the OD.
In device manager, uninstall the OD and restart the computer, let windows install the Driver.
Clean the disc.

So far Confirmed the MB disc works in another computer and I double checked I could read the window OS disc in windows and I can. Just for some reason the MB disc won't play / work in the computer. (Just as I typed this up the splash screen for the MB came up)((FYI I probably have another cd-rom or burner I could install.))((( I can also double check the connections inside when I power it down)))

They are all on the MB installation CD.
Device manager Devices that needs drivers are Ethernet controller, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller and Video Controller.
Any result from checking the OD connections yet?
Have you tried cleaning the disc? Use some distilled water in a shallow container big enough to take the CD, add a few drops of washing up liquid, (not machine dishwasher type) leave the disc in for about 2 minutes, with a lint free rag, wipe gently from the middle to outside , not around, rinse under cold running water, shake off and air dry.

TheGraphics drivers and software are on the installation CD that came with the card, we can run with the Generic windows ones until other stuff sorted.
If IE will allow, go to windows Update, > click on custom install, follow the prompts, > http://update.micros...t.aspx?ln=en-us
Download to the desktop, > http://www.microsoft...-8-details.aspx Do not install yet.
This option for later, used Chrome with an IE extension to download an SP3 ISO to the desktop, ignore advice and warnings, just keep going until you can download,

Only things installed are drivermax (how I got video card driver), firefox and chrome. Thats all I've done since format and fresh install.
Event viewer shows this I will attach a txt when I get it copied. I'm also going to power down and double check connectors for OD.

A fix for this error that may also fix the subsequent one, 'Generate Activation Context failed for C:\Program Files\Common Files\AVG Secure Search\SiteSafetyInstaller\17.2.0\SiteSafety.dll.'
Please download and run, > http://www.microsoft...lang=en&id=5582
Then test connecting to Auto Update, if it fails. Turn of AVG and try again. If still a fail.
With all browsers closed, try the update for IE that you downloaded, (IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU) Then see if you can access Auto Update and Windows update.
