True, I realized that it wouldn't work after a 3rd reboot anyway but I had already sent my message to the list. So I guess the only thing to do would be to make sure that this "feature" of the BIOS is not implemented in the board that you buy. Sometimes that is unavoidable though, if you are using a manufacturers setup such as a blade center as opposed to building your own.

Thanks for the education Nico, I will be watching more closely for this in my future purchases.
No problem: I've been into the hardware and systems end of things for a while now, and actually involved in a project to make cheap serial console boards for blade systems. It took me 10 minutes of sad, sad, sad laughter before I could calm down enough to explain that the very expensive boards they'd just had made didn't have ground plains or bypass caps, and that no, you cannot make a digital circuitry board 16" long that size drawing that much power without either just becuase 1 layer boards are cheaper, even if your engineer who did that did get a "B" in circuit design.
