Pressing ctrl-alt-delete reboots the machine.

This oops does not contain the complete stack trace and was written down off
the screen and rentered by hand so there may be transcription errors...
looks like your bioses oopsed ;(
That sounds quite severe... Can this BIOS be put on a blacklist and worked
around or is the only solution to hope that there was an updated BIOS with this
Can you run dmidecode on the box and attach its output, thats the stuff needed
to blacklist the bios.
