I upgraded an AMD k7 to an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (socket 939, 640k cache, 1800MHz), it boots without any problems with the same 2.6.14-2-k7 kernel.
Motherboard is a 6150K8MA-8KRS (8 audio channels, Gbit LAN, raid, sata), based on NVidia Geforce 6150 and nForce 430.
Memory is DDR400 (PC32000) 512Mb.

Flashing BIOS

When trying to boot a kernel, I got an immediate freeze.
It appears to be the same problem as describe here.
So we have to flash the BIOS...
