Installing 5.2 on my new box with an integraded Intel PRO 1000 CT NIC.
System detects it as em0 but I cant get it to work. I'm trying dhcp and I have added the line: ifconfig_em0="DHCP" in rc.conf but I still get this problem.
em0: Watchdog Timeout ---Resetting
IF I disable ACPI it works perfectly so I think it's IRQ related or?

I think that this is a bug with the em driver on the 5.X series. You did note that it's a "new technology" release and not "advertised" to be suitable for everybody, right?
IIRC, there have been issues with both em(4) and ACPI on the -HEAD (CURRENT, 5.X) code for a while. Good programmers are giving lots of the time and energy, coding for free to get it working, but some things are tricky. You might run without ACPI for a while, switch NICs until the problem is fixed, or run 4.9 or 4.10 [which is due out Real Soon Now(tm)] instead of 5.2 ....
I just now another guy with the some NIC (Intel PRO 1000 CT) and it worked fine but it could be antoher device that is really messing up my system.
What eactly do I miss with ACPI disabled?
Have a good one Kevin!
