..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
No kernel panic.
Are you able to reproduce this bug:
1) With a newer kernel (say 22.214.171.124-124)?
2) Are you able to reproduce this issue booting the kernel on a real machine (not a VM)?
