if they are old hdd's....
When windows is installed on a harddrive, it configures a list of all of the hardware on the comp it is installed on. If you take that harddrive with windows installed and decide to put it in another comp, IT WILL NOT WORK
From the sounds of it... it doesnt even get to the point where the above would matter. You would still be able to install windows onto the drive with out formatting it which would leave all exisiting data on the disk.
Can you get to the bios screen? If you can go into the bios and check the boot order and make sure everything in there is as it should be.
what os are you using? i noticed on their website that the board does not support win98/me incase for some reason you would be running one of those two.
I have also seen on some boards
