It sounds like your machine is failing at the grub stage, which we
haven't encountered before except on very old machines with dodgy
bios'es. syslinux definitely seems to work on more machines than grub,
but on a modern motherboard like yours I'm surprised there's a problem.
I don't suppose there's a bios upgrade available for your machine?
