This sounds like a RAM issue or a strange peripheral problem (when the driver loads it kills the system). Try running the system on only 1 stick of RAM at a time, swapping until you find a bad stick. Also, clean the contacts off with a pencil eraser before putting them in.
If this doesn't help, pull PCI cards one by one (except for the RAID card, if any - but do pull out, clean and put back in the RAID card just in case it's a contact issue) at a time until the system boots (or just try safe mode, but this won't tell you which one is a problem).
If the system still can't boot, then I'd say it's probably the motherboard.
