On the drive what is the jumper set to? is it set to master?
Restore disks from what?? and they probably won't work.
Optical drive can be set in the bios under the boot tab, device priority or similar.
You really need to use the manual mate to make sure you plug things in the correct place, getting it wrong can blow the board.

It probably won't boot, it may but I doubt it will run as the m/board drivers will be for the old board. I doubt you'll be able to do a repair install with restore disks and doing a restore won't work either as it will restore to the old pc configuration/drivers
You really need a Windows disk
