Description of problem:
Loaded Severn Beta 1 on a HP xw6000 workstation. When initializing the Adaptec
cards it complains that no IRQs are found and hangs during boot process. If
booting with acpi=off it will continue to boot normally. Here is the lspci output.

Changing IRQs in BIOS configuration has not effect
The same system works with RH9 stock kernel.
Can you post the output of 'acpidmp' and 'dmidecode'?
Does it boot if you use just pci=noacpi ?
Please verify that the system has the latest BIOS. Looks like you can create a BIOS
1.12 install floppy from the comfort of your local linux box:
Apparently BIOS 1.15 would entail using windows in some form...
If it still fails with the latest BIOS, it would be great if you can capture the failed boot
messages via serial console.
BTW. my SE7505VB2 seems to run beta1 just fine -- it doesn't have an AIC boot disk,
but has 5 PCI NICs that all work.
PCI IRQ routing code changed dramatically between test1 and what we
have now. I'll lay odds on that this is fixed.
no response in 7 months -- close?
