Oh my gawd! I've been going at this from a memory issue :(
'k, stupid question before I write off the memory issue perspective (since
I have Kingston ready to take the whole server and do tests on it) ... I'm
running the SE7520JR2ATAD2 motherboard, with an ICP-Vortex RAID controller

screen, and *long* before the ICP-Vortex RAID controller BIOS does ...
which is why I never thought RAID controller ...
Is there an onboard RAID controller or something that these Beeps pertain
