You only can get dual channel performance if you can get 2 sticks with the exact same specifications, including manufacturer, speed, chip manufacturer, configuration, etc.

You must place them in same color slots.

In the manual, it said for the cpu AMD K8 939 rev. E you should follow the table to configure memory:
SS: single side memory and DS: double side memory. Based on the table (please see the manual of your motherboard), then insert correct memory in designated slots, then system should be recognized correct channel.

I think your motherboard is somehow failed to recognize dual channel memory installed and caused system wont boot as you said. You must install in slot 1/3 or 2/4 (same color slots) for making dual channel working.
