Is Thee any changs to be made in the Mother Board ???
any one faced this problem before , plz help me
If an OS doesn't support a CPU, it will generally just fail to run at all or give an error something like "cannot execute instruction" immediately after starting up. (I know, I have accidentally tried to boot a 32-bit CPU with a 64-bit Linux CD.) Your problem sounds much more like you do not have drivers for some of the hardware on the motherboard. If you cannot see the hard drive, it is most likely that the hard drive's controller is not supported rather than the CPU being at fault.
We may be able to help you if you give specific errors you see when trying to boot a Linux CD on the machine and a list of the hardware (CPU, motherboard model, chipset, etc.)
