Hi, sorry to have been so long.
I restarted the computer, pressed esc, and edited the boot parameters. Right
now it is what is written on my screen:
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For
the first word, TAB lists possible command
complexions. Anywhere else TAB list the possible
complexions Of a device/filename. ESC at any time
exits. ]

rub edit> boot (and I added here) acpi=off noapic

Is it OK and do I press escape now?
Thank you for your answer
