Problems w/ Snow Leopard on a Dell Optiplex 360

I'm having intermittent problems with Snow Leopard on a Dell Optiplex 360. Most of the time, during boot up, I get the following:

 

USBF: 0.648 AppleUSBEHCI[0x67d30000]: unable to get filterInterruptEventSource
USBF: 0.649 AppleUSBEHCI[0x67d30000]::UIMInitialize -Error occurred (0xe00002be)

 

If I see the above, the boot hangs and I eventually get the "waiting for root" problem.

 

It the rare cases where I don't get the error, it boots just fine. I can some times coax the boot to work by switching SATA cables around, reseting the BIOS to defaults, changing random BIOS settings, etc, but I cannot pin down a way to make it "just work". Sometimes using the Legacy Empire EFI disc to boot the partition works, but that also is not guaranteed and fails most of the time.

 

My installation method is EmpireEFI 1.085 and a Retail disc. I've had this with just plain 10.6, 10.6 with the myHack 1.13. plain 10.6.4, 10.6.4 with myHack 1.13 and 1.14.

 

Some forum post had a special IOPCIFamily.kext that was supposed to fix the problem, but this just caused a KP.

 

Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
