Sounds to me like he has a specialized board/bios for the EMachine.
  
I had a machine that I purchased from Fry's with linspire installed.  I
could install any flavor of Linux I tried, but it refused to
install/boot any flavor of Windows.
I had another that came with WinXP, and it had some problems with the
OEM version installed.  It refused to install a vanilla version of XP.

In both cases, installing a generic mobo fixed the problem.
