The Bad EIP message is just a symptom. It indicates that the CPU wasn't able
to store the executable instruction pointer for some reason. Where is the
bootup process just before the system goes into panic?
Typically, a bad EIP message means that the system can't initialize a certain
piece of hardware, so I wouldn't ruled out your network card. Can you pull it
and boot up successfully?
