First and foremost, having installed a new mobo, you cannot safely continue with your old OS installation. Anything that's wrong can be attributed to this. You need to reformat your C:\ drive and re-install your OS. Then, if the problem persists, move on....
Is the DVD player recognised during boot-up. If not, you will need to go into your BIOS and set it up to see the player. Also make sure that you have connected the IDE the right way round - both the to player and to the mobo and that you have no bent pins.
Do any of the lights on the DVD light up during boot-up? If not, check that you have connected the power cable correctly - try a different connector.
