    Various suggestions (e.g., booting with "acpi=off") have either not helped
    or have resulted in a system which won't boot.

    Today I replaced the ASUS A8N (nVidia nForce 4 chipset) mainboard and
    AMD Athlon 64 CPU with a Intel DP965LT (Intel 965 chipset) and E6600
    Duo Core 2 CPU. The SATA disks and cables are unchanged. The case, power
    supply, and video card are also unchanged. Not one of the previous tests
    now results in corruption.

    If anyone (e.g., a nVidia employee) wants to pursue this and can provide
    a meaningful action plan I'll be happy to install the problem components
    in another case and attempt to gather additional diagnostic data.
