New laptop, Lenovo Z585 with an AMD A10 I think. I boot from a 12.04 Live CD and seems like most things are recognized, builtin webcam, bluetooth, wifi etc.
Go to install - not WUBI - I have dedicated partitions for it - / and swap. cam works - my ugly mug is presented to me as a login pic - seems like things are ok. Install completed.
Some issues with Grub - dual boot with windows Windows 7 - but I get by those.
Grub comes up and I try and boot - nomodeset already an option. Boot hangs on an acpi line... Go into BIOS and disable bluetooth. Same problem.
Leave BT disabled in bios and need to add acpi=off on the kernel line to boot.... Not having ACPI is not a good thing of course.
I don't understand why the Live CD - with BT on in the bios and no kernel options boots fine and seems to detect everything - maybe not the best graphics drivers loaded - boots fine but an install from the same live CD can't boot without acpi=off..
Any thoughts on how I can get around this ? I would like BT and acpi functionality. BTW, tried 12.10 beta 2 as well as acpi=off still required to boot.
