Description Miloš Komarčević 2003-01-23 12:38:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
The installer kernel hangs after booting from CD or floppy
on Tyan S1686S motherboard with a Pentium II CPU.

It happens after enabling the local APIC and the last 
message displayed is:

ESR: value before enabling vector: 00000004

Passing apic, noapic or noprobe options to the kernel
does not make a difference.

This problem is around since limbo. Is it really neccessary 
to have APIC support enabled by default in the installer kernel?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD or floppy
2. Press enter at "boot:" prompt

Actual Results:  Kernel hangs

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-03 14:56:51 UTC
newer kernels no longer have the APIC support compiled into the boot kernel...
