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.
