It always happened fairly far into the boot process. KnoppMyth would hang just after
"Detecting Hardware". Sometimes (but not always) it would give a kernel panic. I
tried the 'failsafe' boot with the same result. I'd have to reboot CentOS to see
exactly where it was happening but CentOS would always panic with a whole bunch of
register dumps and so forth that would scroll off the screen.
x86_64 had been rock-solid for almost a week now.
