If anyone has any ideas on this, I'd be happy to hear them !
Turns out the VT8237 BIOS is the same version on both machines (2.01), and since it's supposedly just for RAID support and I'm not using RAID, I have it disabled in the MB BIOS anyway. However, I did try it both ways in both machines and it made no difference to either (outside of a boot message that allows it to be selected). So, I guess it's either some lingering side-effect from a past driver or a hardware fault. I've tried posting the problem on the VIA RAID/SATA forum -- see if anything helpful appears.
