Hi,

I tried on my Laptop Acer 5050 (Gutsy - Kernel 2.6.24.3) ,  to boot the 
live CD Hardy 8.04.

With normal kernel parameters, I have :
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s [modprobe:1283]
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s [modprobe:1283]
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s [modprobe:1283]
.... etc. Hard reboot necessary.

Booting with ACPI=off helps, but no network possible, and I did not try 
all items on my computer.

My question is :
Is there any laptop model 5050 (AMD Turion 64x2) that boots Hardy 
without problem ? If yes what is your BIOS update number (mine is 3315) ?

If somebody can help to boot correctly Hardy, I would be grateful.

Thanks for your help.

Philippe
