I've been looking at the PCI option in the BIOS...

1st part is mapping IRQ to PCI slots...
Then, you have :
PCI/VGA Palette Snoop Disabled
PCI Latency Timer 32
USB Function Enabled
USB2.0 Function Enabled
Onboard LAN Boot ROM Disabled

Maybe related, the memory config :
SDRAM Configuration By SPD
Chipset clock mode Synchronous
SDRam Command Lead-off time Auto
Graphics Aperture Size 256 MB
AGP Capability 4x Mode
AGP Fast Write Capability Enabled
Video Memory Cache Mode UC
Memory hole at 15M-16M Disabled
PCI 2.1 Support Enabled
Onboard PCI IDE Enable Both
IDE Bus Master Support Enabled

Could it be PCI 2.1 Support ? Don't think because I've restarted
with it disabled, and I still have the same problem...
