There appears to be an issue with the Workstation edition of Fedora 24 and my system bios. No matter if the HD that has Fedora WS is primary or secondary or even as stand alone it locks up the computer during the BIOS drive scan. I downloaded and installed the KDE spin and it works perfectly.

The Workstation edition HD is usable in a different AMD based system, also in an earlier Core 2 Quad system so it has to be something to do with the GA-P55USB3 bios.

UPDATE: - The issue seems to be related to Fedora Workstation (Gnome) having issues with the Intel p55 BIOS. When BIOS probes for hard drives, any drive with Workstation installed locks up the system at Drive Detection, never allows it to find the hard disks attached to the motherboard controller. As I do not have a POST code reader, I can only infer this information. I am trying to see if I can find a POST code card to use, one that will narrow down what signals are being tampered with.
