    The hard drive will need a SATA power cable and SATA data cable. The cables are easily available as they are the same cables used on desktop machines.

    The DVD connector looks like an eSATA connector, but I could be wrong. You could take it to a computer store and have them identify it for you and they could sell you the correct cable. Or perhaps someone else on here can identify it?

    Have you connected all the cables to the M2? (+12v, -12v, ignition)

    Try the motherboard with a desktop PSU and see if it fires up.

    As long as you connect all three cables to you M2 (+12v, -12v, ignition), your PC will turn on automatically when you turn your key in the ignition.

    Glad to see you're making progress.
