Problems with recent upgrade to Debian Stretch

So by the ini file the steplength would be 1500ns
And step the min stepspace would be determined by the base thread ?
Would increasing the reset time be of any value (thereby increasing step length?) ?.
It might be worth a try, 1500nS is pretty short. Try 5000 and see if things seem better, or the same.
In the mean time I await an HP Elite 8300 SFF and hope I have better luck installing stretch and the works on that.
Thanks for all your help

I could not see how to turn off sound in the bios, The only thing I thuoght might make a difference was turning off the multiple CPU core, but that made it worse. I am back on wheezy and at least the machine works but I am unable to load software, particularly inkscape and libreCad which makes life difficult. Is there a way to add some kind of archive repository that has this stuff on?
(though I have just found out that wheezy/updates works better than wheezy-updates)
There is still a problem with an expired security certificate at Debian. Changing the system clock for a few minutes bypasses that.
We are in a bit of a bind with there not being a version of RTAI that works on a v4 Linux kernel.
