After resetting CMOS a couple times, it eventually booted and I got F7 on it. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to help things. I also tried the secondary BIOS, and it similarly fails to boot.
I started stripping the box back down to basics, and found that if I remove both the graphics card (Sapphire 7950) and SSD (OCZ Vertex 4), it reliably starts up and politely asks for something to boot off of.
Adding either back causes it to hang during boot again (typically w/ A6 or AE).
Appreciate any thoughts!
