Encountered the widely reported incompatibility with Intel 5000X chipset which results in "the drive appears to be confused" messages and messages about disabling IRQ #90. The Intel 5000X chipset is also used in a similar Dell using the Intel Woodcrest Xeons.

Tried several boot parameter combinations that work with RC1 with no success. After booting from the CD the installer can't find the CD.
