I tried a cold boot yesterday after got physical access to the
machine. I couldn't reproduce the problem nor with plain 2.6.16-rc5
nor the same patched with printk patch from Dave Hansen. I touched
all the DIMMs and have to admit all of them are rather loosely
fitted into the mainboard. I will probably flash the BIOS. I will
retry few more reboots and if I manage to reproduce it I'll post
back. Otherwise, consider it either mechanical problem with the size
of those Kingston 2GB DDR DIMMs or MSI9136 mainboard layout or BIOS
bug. Description of the interresting board capable of even 32GB RAM
is at
