I don't know if it is related, but there is this note in the Release
notes, "Booting Systems with HPET Timer Problems
On some NVIDIA nForce 5 motherboards (in particular from ASUS) or others
that do not support a HPET timer, proper booting might require the
acpi_use_timer_override kernel option at the boot prompt." I realize
this is not the same chipset, but trying the boot parameter shouldn't
take too long to see if it affects the problem.
