generally this is a bios problem, but could you attach the full dmesg for
information?

dmesg
Comment 3 Loki chan 2003-08-11 13:03:41 EDT
if that is bios problem, is there any suggestion for me to fix this issue? like
config/update the bios, or apply patch on the kernel, etc...
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-08-15 09:22:55 EDT
there's no sign of any HT being detected at all in your dmesg; I'd suggest
looking for a bios upgrade...
Comment 5 Loki chan 2003-08-17 15:21:40 EDT
the problem was solved once I upgraded the bios.
