I'm having a problem installing 5.0 RC2 from cd onto my Compaq amarda M700
laptop. I get errors from acpi on boot that look like:

ACPI-1287: *** Method execution failed. AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT

And a complaint about tempurature. Then it tries to mount the memory file
system and hangs. If I use unset acpi_load it boots up, (lots of unknown pci
problems) but it boots and will install.

After installation the system will not boot as it can't mount the root file
system. I get :

setrootbyname failed
ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
root mount failed: 6

If I again do a unset acpi_load, the system boots and I can log in.

I've tried set hw.acpi.ec.event_driven=1 and that didn't make a different.

I've captured acpidump and dmesg if you want to look at that.


Any ideas?
