[Bug 38263] Re: freeze at startup

After booting with "acpi_skip_timer_override" there appears
to be a problem with the CDROM driver at the second stage
(probably caused by some IRQ problems - I also tried booting
with "nodma", but that went even worse).
The CDROM drive makes a sounds like the CDROM media
might be damaged and the installation halts, so I burned a new imaged and checked the md5sum - and the install CD is fine.
I attached a screendump, but I doubt it's helpful.
Booting with the "enable_8254_timer" option seems to screw up the CDROM
driver even worse, and the annoying sound starts already while loading
the ramdisk image.
** Attachment added: "screendump from install"
