I pulled the 3ware card and still no install.
Output was something like this on the console:
SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!
-------------- STUCK HERE ---------------
So, I rebooted and put in a 7.0 RC1 i386 (instead of the amd64).
I tried with a 6.2 amd64 disk I had kicking around -- works fine. Gets
me to the install menu.
 Am I incorrect to assume that an 'amd64' disk will install on my
Intel Core DUO and give me a 64bit OS?
 Is this a compatibility issue with the SUpermicro x7DBi motherboard?
Hoping for answers,
