Description Julian Hofmann 2007-11-10 17:08:07 EST
Description of problem:

The problem looks similar to the problem described in "Bugzilla Bug 221658":
I'm using a "MSI MEGABOOK M670", see (German page)

Fedora 6 worked fine up to some upgrade, after that I it didn't boot telling me

"Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug
and send a report. Then try booting with the noapic option"

like in the other report mentioned above. Adding the noapic-option in the
/boot/grub/grub.conf "solved" the problem.

Now I tried to install Fedora 8. When inserting the Fedora 8 DVD I got the options
1) Install...
2) Install (text mode)...

A few seconds after choosing one I get the same error message -- there is no
longer any chance to use the noapic-option to avoid the problem.

Installing Fedora 7 worked fine.

Best regards,
Julian Hofmann

You can press the [tab] key to edit the install disk boot options.

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I think I'll just close this one...
