Does adding "ignore_loglevel" to the boot options give any more output? There should be a stack trace along with the panic.

Comment 2 Benjamín Valero Espinosa 2009-08-31 18:22:48 UTC
I am having this error with the F12 Alpha LiveCD on an Acer laptop. I attach a log (written by hand) of the messages shown when I bott with the "ignore_loglevel" param.

I have this problem with rawhide on my Acer Laptop too.
Thanks to the information provided in this bug report, I have blacklisted the acer-wmi module and rawhide kernel now boots fine.

Comment 5 Jason McCoy 2009-08-31 21:59:35 UTC
I've just installed the 64-bit version and it boots fine..... weird?
but the 32-bit version would not work at all! thanks for the help guys

It seems that has been solved in the new kernel in Rawhide, although I haven't tested it:
