    Well, now I'm stunned.

    With APIC and ACPI enabled, my machine isn't even able to boot
    completely, it'll most certainly crash before the init scripts are

    Now, I modified the init scripts to do "athcool off" as the first
    thing at all (I don't have any "CPU disconnect" BIOS setting) and it
    not only booted, but I even can't seem to make it crash using my
    hdparm/grep/whatever tests...

    I don't know if it's "rock solid" yet, but at least the difference is
    huge. It really seems like that made the problem go away!
