[Bug 272247] Re: System freezes during boot, unless I hold a key down

** Description changed:
Once the Ubuntu splash screen loads with the progress bar that moves back and forth, it freezes. Holding down any key unfreezes the system, and it continues
loading normally, until I release the key, at which point it freezes again. Holding a key down again unfreezes the system again.
Pressing Alt+F1 to show the output also freezes, so I know it isn't just
the splash screen freezing, but the entire system.
Once X loads, it works perfectly fine though, and I don't have to keep
holding a key down.
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 sometimes
works is to add nolapic to GRUB boot kernel options. acpi=noirq is also
known to work.
