Default Cannot boot from CD

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: CD with burned ISO image
Image version:
ftp://ftp.tudelft.nl/pub/Linux/releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/hardy/kubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso,
later also tried
ftp://ftp.tudelft.nl/pub/Linux/releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386.iso
Date: 30 July 2008

Machine: Compaq Presario A970ed
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T5750
Memory: 3GB DDR2
Partitions: One NTFS partition with Vista, one NTFS partition with Compaq
recovery stuff
Further specs: http://www.mycom.nl/Products/View/Compaq Presario A970ed
T5750/192145.aspx#Specs

Output of lspci -nn and lspci -vnn:

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot: [ ]
Detect network card: [ ]

Install base system: [ ]
Clock/timezone setup: [ ]
User/password setup: [ ]
Install tasks: [ ]
Install boot loader: [ ]
Overall install: [ ]

Comments/Problems: I want to try whether my hardware (bought a few days
ago) is supported by booting from CD. When loading the kernel, the process
hangs at 87%.

As the T5750 is a 64-bit processor, I tried the amd64 version of Kubuntu.
The i386 version of Ubuntu (K not forgotten) has the same problem,
however. I tried several options that were mentioned under the help:
noapic, nolapic, vga=771, generic.all_generic_ide=1, mem=512m. It hangs at
87% when I try to load linux from CD, but also when I select "Check CD for
Defects". "Test Memory" hangs silently (no percentage seen). Checksums for
the ISO images are fine. Do not know how to calculate checksum of a CD,
but two separate CDs have the same problems so I do not expect problems
there.

Do I have to wait a few releases till the hardware is supported?

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Wim

Hi Wim. Have you tried adding acpi=off to the kernel line?

I also had to disable acpi in the BIOS to get anything to boot. If that option
is there it may be worth a try.

Nigel.

btw, that's with 64 bit AMD 3800+ cpu, and Hardy Heron 8.04 i386 version.

My AMD Sempron 3400+ could be booted with acpi=off but then a number of
functions were missing. It will also boot with nolapic, and then works
much better then with acpi=off.

Hi Aart. I'm sorry that didn't work. I found the link below in my Fedora list
mailbox. Look particularly at the section "crashes/hangs". You may find
something there which will resolve your problem.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelCommonProblems

All the best.

Nigel.
