  Biostar (Motherboard)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

all on-board hardware

What doesn't work:

all of the extra features that are part of the BIOS - the utilities are for windows only, and the BIOS "unlocking" of additional cores at boot seems to break startup.

What was done to make it work:

I'm not even going to attempt to try the additional software, nor am I worried about extra cores at startup; all cores come online and work fine.
