It would be helpful to have any idea what some of the errors these various problems give as output, even if it is a panic shortly after an attempted boot. Knowing what the problem looks like in those situations where the hardware may not be fully known, would be a great help in making suggestions for possible fixes- and also might help with generalizing with errors that have similar solutions.
