Ok, it gets even stranger. Turns out, when I upgraded to Xbow 1.3 I also switched out my mainbaord (030-0887-00x IP30 version), and the system seemed to boot a tad slower, so I switched back
to the original mainboard, and the problem surfaced again. However, the Xbow 1.3 that I was running slowed things down alot (Hmm), so I'm running Xbow 1.2 again. It's not really that big of a deal, and everything else runs perfect, I just think it's a little strage.
