Hi All,

I'm closing this one out as a Motherboard/CPU fault...

I installed Windows 7 on a spare drive and it crashed before installing the
GPU drivers and again (much later) after the GPU drivers had been installed.

Also, I've had one hang when running with an nVidia G210 PCIe card and the
i915 module uninstalled

Time to return it for anther board
