Thanks for the tips! I'll have more info in a couple of weeks on this - I'm in training and not at home until thursday, and Friday we leave to visit relatives for another week. I did do the rebuild all in single-user mode before I left Sunday, and now I get another signal 12 core crash, at the *same* virtual address, but in a *different* utility... don't remember which one right now, but it seemed completely unrelated. When I get home in a few weeks, I'm going to run some memory tests and yanking extraneous hardware to try to see if I can make it stop. Anything else you all can think of to try?
