For the smbios fail I found from PC-Doctor, Inc. - Computer Hardware Diagnostic Software
(under the section "Tests & Devices") :
What should I do if the SMBIOS Standards Test fails?
Answer: The SMBIOS Standards Test is intended for preproduction design testing only. The test checks to see that information about a computer conforms to all required and optional sections of the SMBIOS specification. Test failures usually occur when an optional entry is left blank. Failures do not affect system performance or reliability. The results can safely be ignored.
I also swapped the hard drive and reinstalled the system from the R&R discs. I am back in business...
