Linux vs ACPI APIC Support

Wed, Aug 18, 2010 One-minute read

Now that I have my new computer, I wanted to try Linux on it. Unfortunately, none of the distributions I tried worked, they just did not want to start so I could not install them. The only way was to use the safe mode.

After a while, I found the reason for it. The ACPI APIC support. After disabling it in the BIOS, everything worked fine. An alternative way is to set the boot option noapic.

I don’t know why none of the Linux Distributions can handle it, I hope this will be fixed soon.
