> There's something I remember reading about my IBM ThinkPad that there's a "compatibility mode" in the BIOS for USB and SATA booting. Something about it needs to be in that mode until the OS is installed. 

Your new motherboard may also be EFI boot instead of BIOS. Sometimes they're dual mode where you can switch between them. Your old install on the existing SATA hard disk is almost certainly configured for BIOS boot if it was on 15-year-old hardware.
