If after all of this the problem persists, I think it's a motherboard issue. If your machine is new enough and still under warranty, you should contact them. I doubt a warranty replacement would solve the problem, but it's worth a try. Otherwise, if it still fails with a new machine, I would demand that they give you credit to exchange for a different model. This is a very rare condition, so don't get discouraged! Ubuntu is great.

I also found a few others with server hardware giving them problems. They recommend disabling C-States in the BIOS, which may be called something else, but is related to power-saving modes of the CPU itself. You can read more about this and other possible kernel boot options at bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=548198
