Hyperthreading Enabled Causes Crashes

I recently recieved 15 Dell Gx280's which are HT capable. I want to just copy my old Gx270 image (winXP) onto the new machines, yet if I enable hyperthreading the computer crashes within a minute of use. the error message that I get is a windows stop error essentially telling me that the video driver is caught in a loop. I am using the onboard Intel 910/915 video chipset and have tried both the most recent Intel and Dell drivers with no luck. I am running Novell client 4.9 could this be a problem? All my drivers are up to date, anyone know what could be wrong?

Thanks,
Lukas

Have you tried to upgrade the BIOS? Others have had good luck with that fix recently (http://softwareforums.intel.com/ids/board/message?board.id=42&message.id=628)

I think that worked! I had my doubts because I thought the BIOS was updated. Note to anyone with this problem: Try a second restart after BIOS updates!

Thanks Clay, everyone else who came up with the BIOS update.
