    you mixed ECC memory with non-error checking memory


    Based on the information provided within the question it can be said that the problem in this scenario is most likely the fact that you mixed ECC memory with non-error checking memory. Mixing both of these types of memory will remove the ECC capability from ECC memory and if the motherboard requires ECC memory it will not boot, as is the case in this scenario.
