Default Bug#517193: linux-image-2.6.28-1-amd64 fails to boot on amd64

Ben.


I can confirm having hit

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12520

Changing the "Max CPUID Value Limit" to disabled fixed this booting
problem. There is a already a patch in mainline (kernel) See this
thread
http://groups.google.com/group/linux.kernel/browse_thread/thread/2f27b0fe76919496/3638e04e45c3824b?lnk=raot

Post from Ingo Molnar on 22.Jan
I will now try to use this patch on 2.6.28.

Sincerely
Pol

I got to boot past beyond "Booting the kernel" with the BIOS Setting as
I had it initially and I wasn't able to boot. Now it does I needed to
apply those two diffs to a 2.6.28 Kernel found here

http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/1/21/356

I also see this. Disabling the "Max CPUID Value Limit" in the BIOS
CPU configuration allows the kernel to boot.

However, applying the patch in the link above did not allow the
kernel to boot without this option being disabled. I applied
directly to the current linux-2.6 source package, then built and
installed it. I'll try again tomorrow with both patch1 and patch2
(this was just patch1), and see if that makes a difference.


Regards,
Roger
