Thank you for the hint. We've already tried to reproduce with MCA disabled, and didn't succeed. The thing is, without altering the bios default settings, the OS doesn't even get an MCE before the system reboots itself showing those "hypertransport sync flood" and "pci express fatal error" stuff during POST. So I guess it's safe to say, that the problem happens before MCA can kick in.
