> loading normally, until I release the key, at which point it freezes again. Holding a key down again unfreezes the system again.

> Update : This bug happens with 2.6.26 and 2.6.27 kernels with a computer that has Nvidia MCP67 motherboard. A known workaround that sometime works is to add nolapic to GRUB boot kernel options.
