|What exactly are you trying to do? Your question is completely lacking in any pertinent detail to determine what might be your problem.|
Presume you are talking about some kind of motherboard. A motherboard does not respond to an operating system. An operating system runs in a compatible hardware environment. You have not detailed any of the hardware involved nor given any information on what steps you have taken, or error messages received. Not even certain whatever it is you are dealing with will boot up into BIOS.
