if you boot with "pci=noacpi" does the network come up?
can you append the dmesg -s40000 and /proc/interrupts output from the failure
& success cases?
I reinstalled Severn and added an avanced boot option(?) using acpi=off. After
install, my network card is operating and I am able to connect to my cable internet.
