Party Time!

A quick BIOS flash or two later, both machines boot, recognise all their hardware, and pass Memtest86.  They both show the RAM as DDR3-1333 rather than the DDR3-1600 it ought to be, but I'm not going to fuss about that right now.

The CentOS 6.3 installer can't see the Blu-Ray drive attached to the secondary (non-chipset) SATA controller, but that was easily solved by attaching my USB DVD drive - which turned out to still have the CentOS 5.3 installer disc from when this happened to me last time.

So, about 60% of the way into the CentOS install on Lina, and then over to Shana to load up Windows 7.

Update: Oops. Well, I get to install it again now, but that's not so bad.
