If you get bad colors from video, try dropping down to
800x600 to get a full palette, on an older machine.

It takes some experimentation to find the vga=xxx
parameter that works best on a given machine.

Well, what the hell. Now the damn thing works. When I booted it again after my friends opened the case, got the BIOS banner (which it didn't show before) and was able to access the USB ports without frying. Now booting off USB, way faster than the old box. Video is faster too. Wonder if there could have been a short or something?
