We blacklist acpi by year for i386 (2001), some newer might need acpi=off or
pci=noacpi, some older still needing/working with acpi need acpi=force.
There is no better way, if you have such a machine that is on the edge of the
date, you need to pass this parameter (parameters passed at installation time
will always be active later).
My BIOS is the latest you can get (from 2001). Does this mean that my machine
is seen as ACPI compliant?
Still your issue could be fixed by a DVD firmware
update (using the latest is
IMO always a good idea) or possibly a BIOS update (not sure whether I would
risk that for this issue..).
There is no update availabe and if there would be one I couldn't install it
If you do not miss any functionality with acpi=off
(some devices not working
because of wrong assigned interrupts (pci=noacpi might help), or power button,
shutdown or reboot), you just might want to use this option for that machine.
So does acpi=off also include pci=noacpi or do I need both parameters?
