..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
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

Expected results:
No kernel panic.

1) With a newer kernel (say
2) Are you able to reproduce this issue booting the kernel on a real machine (not a VM)?
