If there is a solution or any guesses, I'd appreciate it.

A few settings in the bios can make a difference :
- "AA" Q-code = "All Allright" you must have it
- Bios advanced settings:
+ Boot tab : Option ROM messages , set "Keep Current"
+ Advanced tab : Onboard Devices Configuration: dissable all devices which aren't necessary, like Blue Tooth Controller, Marvell Storage Controller, JMB Storage Controller, Realtek LAN controller,
+ Advanced tab : APM : enable "Power on by PCIE"
