ACPI freeze [solved]

I have a new computer dual CPU Intel P4 512 of RAM.
It has a motherboard Intel D946GZiS.
The problem is that it installs Arch just fine but ... when I reboot I get

APCI:bus type pci registered
PCI: Using MMCONFIG
ACPI: Subsystem revision 20050902
ACPI: Interpreter Enabled
ACPI: Using IOAPIC for interrupt routing
ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)
ACPI: Assume root bridge [_SB_.PCI0] bus is 0

and then it freezes.
Nothing works, no keyboard (it's a wireless keyboard) which worked just fine during installation, no mouse  ... nothing.
The whole thing is dead in the water and only a reboot can re-start things up to the very same point.

Any ideas? I want to get Arch in this iron.

Thanks in advance.

Re: ACPI freeze [solved]

Try

noacpi

as Kernel parameter


Have you tried to turn it off and on again?

fk,

Thank you for your posting.
Actually, last night at 2:30 AM I figured it  out ...  wink  like I said, I want to run Arch on this iron.
At any rate, the problem is solved by adding "acpi=nommconf" to the kernel line. After that, it books and works OK.

Thanks again.

Re: ACPI freeze [solved]

I really hate to bump something this old but I think it's worth asking.

Where did you get that acpi=nommconf parameter from? Not only did it solve my freezing problems (something I was fixing with acpi=off) but it also enabled my wireless card to work (I'm guessing because the power management wasn't doing it's job to keep it functioning since it was off). All the google results are in spanish or portuguese so if you could tell me where you located that parameter that would be incredible.
