When the system boots and displays its "Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt" prompt, hit space to get to a bootloader prompt.
Then type this in: set hint.acpi.0.disabled=1 boot You system will then boot with ACPI disabled. You will need to do this on every successive boot until you can edit the /boot/device.hints file and disable ACPI permanently.
