You have my sympathy for having made that choice - it has an nForce chipset. :~(
Check out the similarity to mine (Intel LGA775):
They date to the same year, 20+ BIOS versions on downloads page for mine, starting
in 2006-07, while yours has fewer total but newer "latest", beginning in 2006-08.
Your 1701 is 2009-03-02, with 2 newer "beta" versions available. I use the latest
"beta" for mine, 2009-02-11, am thinking about reverting to latest non-beta,
Mine has so many features it seems like an eternity between the time POST
completes its cleanup and Grub shows up on screen. Never have I seen any other PC
reliably take *so* long. Its master /boot partition begins @282.4MB, ends @682.5.
I need to try moving it to the front sometime when I have nothing better to do to
see if it makes a difference, if the BIOS revert doesn't help.
