Interesting. Can you please exactly tell me what CPU your machine has?

Milo detect only (via the ARC BIOS' limitied capabilites) CPU controlled
second level cache, not PC-style chipset controlled. The later type
doesn't need special support, so Milo doesn't really care about it.

Hm... Not unusual. The ARC BIOSes that I've tried yet are *that*
buggy that they are barely useable. I bet they've just been developed
to the point where they can be used to install & boot WNT & related tools.
Would you run some special hardwaretest program, if I send you one to
find out more about your machine?
