    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    HP-Pavilion AY597AA-ABL HPE-110f/ALOE, BIOS 5.03 09/11/2009
    AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 925

    This setup worked with kernels up until 3.6.10
    Then it froze on: Loading initial ramdisk...

    Same problem with 3.7.0 and 3.7.1

    I got the machine to boot on 3.7.1 using: noapic nolapic noacpi

    Once the machine was up, I reapplied the AMD microcode:

    sudo aptitude reinstall amd64-microcode

    Thereafter, machine boots without the need for: noapic nolapic noacpi

    That might be the reason I did not get any problems with 3.7 on AMD.
    I've used microcode for quite some time: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1945481
    Remedy I've used is just the same as it is in amd64-microcode with exception of some scripts and documents...
    Thank You.
    At the time I was trying to solve that problem, I did not notice that a package was available... It is nice to have it now...
    (Ater some searching, when time permitted, there is same package for Quantal, emerged after my post given above, and it is also backported later for Precise...)

    I've had the amd84-microcode installed from the beginning, as I was getting a missing microcode error on boot. I didn't notice if there is a newer version available for the 3.7 kernel.

    I'm using amd64-microcode (1.20120910-2) unstable.

    „Just out of curiosity, how many of us with AMD cpu's that are having trouble booting the the latest kernel available in the repositories have amd64-microcode (one way or another) installed?“

    NHF, just a teaser...

    Update₁: To be serious: I've noticed since I've started work today with it that 3.7.0-7-generic #15-Ubuntu is noticeably slower than 999(daily) from mainline... It even seems to be slower that lowlatency of same version...

    Heh! Glad to hear that... in an odd way.

    I was using the Ubu 3.7 final from the official PPA (for a few days) and this machine was flying like the wind. Fast, everything was responsive, and so forth, and so on.

    Now, I'm running the 3.7.1-030701 kernel, and it's dogging it, again.

    Just saying...

    Bad news, 999 just panicked twice on me... I've jinxed it...
    It is obviously suffering from pre-3.8 virus...
    Trouble is that I was playing with scheduling, latency and such stuff and I might be to blame beside kernel itself...
    Update₁: No, it's not my fault, liquorix 3.6 flies...

    I've always loved Liquorix kernels -- always have it on tap!

    Dittos for Ubu 10.10 and trust 2.6.x.

    Those are my two fallbacks, when +1 takes a dive...

    Thumbs down Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    I won't be able to test today's Nightly Build with my Dell AMD Processor and ATI Radeon Graphics Card Desktop today (due to the Winter Snow Storm hitting the Chicago Area right now as I am right now using my Dell Intel Netbook Only at the moment due to the fact that the lights just flickered and obviously my desktop does NOT have a Battery in the PC like my Dell Netbook has, but I will try Zsyncing tomorrow's Nightly Build assuming that we have power tomorrow morning and let you guys know how it turns out.
