comment Mac OS X 10.7 can't ping/telnet localhost
Do you have Little Snitch (or compareable) running - saw that behavior over here too when running that.

There used to be a nVidia GeForce G210 in it, so PCI-e GPUs work. The BIOS is already the latest version available, and the changelog mentionned an error with PCI-e, in one of the previous releases, which has been fixed.

And the fans run waaaaay slower on the faulty board. Even when it was'n faulty yet. I only have one 'cable' which has 3 molex on it. The other one contains about 4 SATA power plugs. In the working setup, the card (and other parts) get up to 45-50 dB (especially with this weather). I know molex to sata exists, but the other way around, does that exists too?

I think it's indeed a PSU issue. The card runs fine on a PCI-e 1.x board, I now use another PC, because of the exam monday (and in that PC were my project files :( ). I found that older PC on a second hand site, it has an AMD Athlon64 4000+, 2GB DDR400, 400W PSU. This currently works. The other PC, described above, has everything intel (945G chipset). I do require an ATI card, for the applications I run: nVidias have poor OpenCL performance compared to these ones, in the same price range.

comment PXELinux and compressed kernels/images
Removing more date from the image, by stripping debugging symbols and development programs/libraries did the job. Image is compressed to 260M now, which is acceptable for me, since it's transfered through a GBit connection (takes about 25sec to transfer).
