Description of problem:
While booting up the FC2 test1 installer CD, it froze when displaying
"loading up aic7xxx driver" or something like that.
The system is a L440GX+ - the FC1 installer also cannot boot on it
unless it's a hacked installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.attempt to install FC2 test1
Actual Results: frozen while loading SCSI
Expected Results: should work fine
Use acpi=force. Len at intel has been fixing this upstream. Its a 2.4
fix that got dropped by mistake from 2.6
acpi=force does not work for me.
Here's the message:
No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 000:00:0c.1
Unable to set IRQ for PCI Interrupt Link [PRQ3] (likely buggy ACPI
BIOS). Aborting ACPI-based IRQ routing. Try pci=noacpi or acpi=off.
Is this a problem with my bios settings?
