Well, if I disable SMP, I seem to be going in the right direction as the machine no longer locks up. > Unfortunately, I cannot disable ACPI on this ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe board > as the kernel dumps on errors 9 every time. Well, I'm obviously very unlucky since I have an Asus P4C800 Deluxe and get the same thing! The message is: Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode instruction pointer = 0x58: 0x2d5c stack pointer = 0x10: 0xf80 frame pointer = 0x10: 0x0 code segment = base 0xc00f000, limit 0xffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 0, gran 0 processor eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 0 (swapper) trap number = 0 panic: general protection fault > So for me, ACPI was the key. If I could just get this bloody ASUS board > to boot without ACPI I think I'd be in business. I think you're right. After searching on Google for a while (as I am sure you have done) I have found no solution. > Good luck to you and I'd appreciate any info you have if successful. I don't think I'm going to be able to solve this. Hopefully it will be fixed soon, apparently the problem is "5.x has grown a regression in its handling of BIOS32 calls somehow".
