No. The problem Intel boxes do use Phoenix BIOS. His box is the exact
problem model. It requires the use of IOAPIC support for UP or SMP in
order to work properly. If 2.4.8 and 2.4.9 both work correctly now
*without* the use of UP-IOAPIC and without SMP, then that means in 2.4.8
there must have been added a DMI scan whitelist entry that makes this
motherboard do something sane (like never trying to assign interrupts or
enabling UP-IOAPIC even if it isn't the default).
