Very interesting situation there..

I have a SATA DVD drive also, but I didn't mention that as I imagine it's fairly irrelevant, but mine is set to boot from cd/dvd prior to disk also.

This does seem to be AMD related given the above and usbtux's issue also. I just booted today and received a ~10-15 second cycling stack trace. Which actually came in handy for taking pictures (see attached, apologies for the blur).
There were definite soft and hard cpu lockups involved even if they aren't shown here. These images were in sequence and they 'should' follow on from each other, but when the screen reloads I can't be sure a whole load of stack-trace doesn't fly off the screen.
